I have always been a traveler. I was born in Belgium and grew up in Bogotá, Mexico City, and Chapel Hill. When my family moved to New York City, I had the unique opportunity of attending the United Nations International School while my father worked for the UN. After graduating from SUNY Stony Brook with a BA in Political Science, I moved out to the San Francisco Bay Area with the idea of becoming a lawyer, but after a two-month motorcycle trip along the Pacific Coast, I realized that film was my passion.
After being a Production Designer and Art Director on several indie films and making my own documentary about an Oakland blues organist, I began to focus on location sound mixing. I have a passion for music documentaries and have worked on many, including Never Too Late: The Doc Severinsen Story, Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings, Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey, Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders, Approximately Nels Cline, and American Masters’ “Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound” and “Miles Davis: The Birth of the Cool.”
I’ve been fortunate that my work has allowed me to continue to travel. It has taken me across the country and the world to England, Scotland, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Israel, Sweden, Russia, China, India, Malaysia, Cambodia, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Haiti, Tahiti, The Congo, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia, and the U.A.E.
