Mike's passion for music began at a young age, where he played 4 different instruments in various bands at school, church, and with friends. At the age of 16, he recorded his first paid recording gig for a band he discovered on PureVolume.com, launching his career as an audio engineer. For a decade, Mike produced and mixed for local, regional, and national touring bands, gaining recognition for his work being played on radio stations, MTV2, MuchMusic, and with bands getting signed to labels.
An opportunity arose to work with GRAMMY™ winning mastering engineer Hank Williams at Mastermix in Nashville, TN. Under Hank's mentorship, Mike got to learn the art of mastering and hear hit songs by Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, and also view the mastering session of the smash hit "This Is How We Roll" by Florida Georgia Line.
Mike then moved to New York City to apprentice for GRAMMY™ nominated mastering engineer Scott Hull at Masterdisk, where he assisted on sessions for Dave Matthews Band and Sting's The Last Ship on Broadway. Quickly rising through the ranks, Mike became a mastering engineer, building his clientele and reputation for delivering expertly mastered songs and being one of the nicest mastering engineers around.
Now the owner of his own studio, The Foxboro, Mike is sought after for his expertise in mastering and getting projects across the line for record labels and independent artists. He ensures that every project he works on sounds its absolute best.
