Call me!

Producer & Engineer
Making music with friends is my passion.
Record your project yourself? Someone else record it? Can't get it to sound the way you want? Send it to me, I'll mix it.
Need a session guitar player? Got ya covered there as well. You're welcome.
Everything Else
Need help with live sound, podcast audio, or a church installation? Chances are that if I can't help you, I know someone who can.
Cookie knows music, knows production, and listens to what you want. He’s not happy unless you’re happy and puts the extra time in to make it perfect.

Chris did a wonderful job with mixing our Live CD project. We were pleased with the turn around time and how he took everything we said and gave us the best product possible. We are extremely happy with the finished album and so is our congregation.

Easy to work with and a great product. No matter the artist I'm recording with, Cookie is always the guy I call to track my drums.

Maybe it would have sufficed to simply say that if Chris isn't available for a session, we wait until he is. Why chance it with anyone other than an expert who's great to work with?

It is a huge relief to know when you have finished a song, that I have just the person to call. There is no question- Cookie is the most talented producer I have ever worked with.

After many years and many recording sessions I've finally found someone who genuinely cares about his craft and art as much as I care about mine. Cookie is as passionate about recording and mixing as I am about writing songs. Always a pleasure to work with, always fun to be around, and always providing a stellar final product.

Partial Discography

I produced, recorded, mixed and mastered this one. Played guitar on it as well. Love this song. Was a really fun one!
Here is one that is near and dear to my heart. First full length album with my wife. I played a lot of guitar on it and recorded a lot of it with Scott Wilson (Tantric, Saving Abel). What a great project to collaborate with so many people. We had Steve Hinson (Dolly Parton, Randy Travis, pretty much everyone else) play steel on it, Jimmy Herman from the Carrie Underwood band played fiddle on a song. Eamon Mcloughlin (house player for Opry, Toby Keith, Thousand Horses). I'm really proud of this album.
Mixing this music was a total blast. I don't often to get to mix dance/electronic music like this. Elektrohorse is a class act and an amazing artist. Watch out for him. He is blowing up.
This is a record I mixed. They let me loose on this one. It was fun to use all the reverb and spatial effects on this one. Lots of emotions on this album. Well worth the listen.
This was a live recording I did at Oddbody's in Dayton, OH. Live recordings are fun. I add extra mics out in the audience and mix the crowd and main PA mix into the individual tracks. I think this project turned out really well. Ofcourse, it helps when the band is great.
Produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered this record. Wanted to capture the energy of this band live. Mostly recorded live. Americana with an edge.
"Fifty Dollar Famous is a two-piece band that plays punk for money. One drummer. One bass player. And zero f*cks.This isn't lo-fi recording. This is NO-fi recording."
In all the universe, only a handful of sentient worlds create music, let alone the most evolved form of music: rock ‘n’ roll. Earth was on track to be admitted into the Galactic Union, but somewhere along the line its rock ‘n’ roll turned weak. RED HOT REBELLION, the second best band in the galaxy, has been sent to Earth in order to steer humanity back on its proper path. But it looks like they've hit a few snags...
CD EP from RED HOT REBELLION jam-packed with 5 super badass rock n roll gems!
RED HOT REBELLION self-titled album on compact disc. Packaged in rad-as-hell digipack. Comes with the Red Hot Rebellion comic book. Each page corresponds to a song on the album! 10 pages of amazing devil-fueled awesomeness.
This was a live concert recording that I mixed. What a blast mixing this record! Great musicians and great songs at a great church!
Sure, this is my wife's album. Don't think for a second this was easy! Country music with a rock edge while I manned the helm and played guitar.
A single after the release of the full length album almost a year later. Dark and edgy.
Lorenzo, a modern rock group blasting out of the Midwest with a sound that’s equal parts light texture and heavy shade (something akin to Nickelback, Seether, etc.), announces the release of its latest CD, Ignition. Named by fans in an online contest, the title is proof positive that the band is quickly developing a base of fans eager for music with a refreshingly different spark, in particular, this spark. So, light it up!
Inspired by Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson, Sia, and The Civil Wars, Meghna performs these original jazzy/singer-songwriter/indie pop songs with her seasoned, soulful voice that is sure to haunt you... in a good way.
What you think you know about unicorns is a lie. A lie woven into the very fabric of our history and perpetuated by an evil, ageless conspiracy. This is the untold story of a ragtag band of Vikings hellbent on revenge and sworn to stave off an invasion... I mixed the theme song to this incredibly groundbreaking comic book series.
Jazz trio? Yes please. This was a record and mix project. Silky smooth vocals. Great band!
This was a mix project. This artist recorded everything themselves. We mixed an entire album in 2 days. One of my favorite projects.
One of the most creative individuals I've worked with. Very electronic and "British" sounding for lack of a better term. This was another mix project. Had a blast on this one.


I have the pleasure of having great relationships with companies that really care about music. Please visit their sites and feel free to ask me about any of their products!

I've been with SIT strings for years. I really do think they make the best strings on the planet. I play very aggressively and they never break and they always STAY IN TUNE!
I'm fairly new to Reverend guitars, but I can't tell you how much I love these guitars. The build quality is top notch, they look badass, and they SOUND out of this world. Some of the most unique guitars on the plant. I currently own a Roundhouse and and a Ron Asheton Signature series.
I recently started working with CAD audio with Jamie Suttle. We've got a whole bunch of CAD mics including the wireless for Jamie's lead vocal. We're also using the M179's for drums live and in studio, D80's for guitar cabs, and D90's on vocals. Best bang for your buck in my opinion. Small company with great people.
One of the best decisions I've made as an artist is to start using in ear monitors. I've got custom molded A3's from 64audio and couldn't be happier with the sound quality. I'm a better musician because of it.
Tech 21 makes some of the coolest amps and pedals around. I've had a Trademark 60 (now discontinued) for over 10 years and it is rock solid. I still play shows with it. I also use a Tech 21 Plexi pedal as my main sound when playing. I'll be getting my acoustic FLY Rig soon and I can't wait for that. Unique boutique style products that aren't priced like it.
