I have worked with many professional producers and engineers during my career from Elvis/Orbison producer engineer Bill Porter to AC/DC/Metallica producer and engineer Bob Rock.

I have trained over a dozen assistant engineers and Michael comes to mind as someone I wished I had working with me during my 20 year tenure as Chief Engineer at Ocean Sound in Vancouver.

Michael’s willingness to learn and listen not only to the music but to the experience of those that came before him in the professional recording world, will serve him well.

His unbounded energy, curiosity and commitment to completing the job at hand in the most professional way possible is an inspiration.  I believe Michael is well on his way to becoming a World Class recording engineer and producer.
