Hi. I’m Nick.
I’m a freelance audio engineer and composer with an obsession for creating rich and immersive experiences in the music and podcasting domains. Since moving to New York City in 2010, I’ve been lucky enough to operate within the city’s robust DIY music community, both as an engineer at venues like Shea Stadium and as a touring musician in For Everest, Hard Pass, and way too many other bands.
After spending nearly a decade engineering and working within music, I’ve developed an innate sense for understanding an artist’s goals with the production. Whenever I’m collaborating with an artist, I’m deeply conscious of the trust that they’re placing in me to handle a work of art where they’re putting themselves far outside of their comfort zones. Preserving that trust is a top priority for me regardless of the project, and making sure that lines of communication stay open in that process is one of the most essential parts of any project I’m involved with.
I entered the podcasting field in 2016 as a tape editor for the programs HVAC School, Dialed In, and Career Café, produced by Bryan Orr at Kalos Services. Since getting my bearings to understand the unique mechanics behind narrative audio, I have scripted, mixed, and produced shows with clients at Digiday Media, the Medici Group, and most recently on the audio drama The Adventures of Wonder!, recently featured as a ‘New and Notable’ program in the iTunes store.
I received my BM and MM in Music Technology from New York University in 2015, with a thesis specializing in the development of a Max for Live plugin to identify and correct microphone phase discrepancies at the microphone source. In my spare time, I like playing with synthesizers, photography, and my cat, Wednesday.
