Owner and producer of Skeptical Records, and owner and engineer of Artspoke Recording Studios. The studio has been under my control for the past three years in its current location, and seven years before that in Albany. It features everything you'd expect from a full-service indie studio, plus a little more - me! I seek to extend my experience and facility to other hungry, dedicated artists out there.
