Modern, High Quality and Affordable Productions

the damage room is my personal studio, it's located in the house I live in, not far from Philadelphia, PA. You can use it at no extra cost (aside from my own rates), or if you want, you can have me come to your studio, where I can take on the role of engineer/producer.

Some of the brands I use:

About Me
10+ years of experience in music.

I've been working in music, as a composer and a producer, since 2004, right after I finished music school in Paris, France. I've been into music for as long as I can remember, and a metalhead since about 9. I'd much rather talk about your music than myself, so get in touch with me (or text me - reception is pretty bad in the studio).

How I Work
In a Nutshell.

The way I work is not formulaic. I tailor each production to each band I work with. However, there is a certain general sound that I try to go for, or that my ears find pleasant let's say. I do tend to like clean productions with a very massive weight to them, not in terms of loudness necessarilly, but I do like a tightly packed low-end!

My Influences
Bands: Soilwork, Opeth, Katatonia, Tool, Meshuggah, Kaizers Orchestra, Freak Kitchen, Strapping Young Lad, Gojira, Tigran Hamasyan, A Perfect Circle, etc… (too many to list)
Producers: David Castillo, Jens Bogren, Jacob Hansen, Devin Townsend, Peter Tägtgren, Andy Sneap, Tue Madsen, Randy Staub, Andy Wallace, etc… (Again, too many to list)
