Rate Sheet


I believe in giving the best deal possible and is negotiable within reason. I will never short cut quality for any reason, and my gear is pro grade and always ready to go…my work speaks volumes.

I am not the guy that shows up on set just to collect a payday, I come prepared to work, and at the end of the day “Client satisfaction”  “Job Well Done” 

I will match any legitimate quote from any qualified Production Sound mixer for the same job.
