My Vision


More than two decades in the audio business, at facilities large and small, taught me a lot about how studios make money and why they charge what they do. I could see there was a niche no one had occupied yet. What I set out to do was build something capable of doing the same kinds of work I’d done elsewhere, without the typical overhead associated with running a studio in Toronto. I started off with the gear first, then, when I realized people were really interested in my business model, a professional control room and booth were installed under my direction. After 11 years in operation, I’m really happy with the way things have worked out. All sorts of projects are brought here for a variety of reasons and everyone leaves happy. That's what really matters.

In recent years, I've taken my experiences and put them to print on, as well as working with major software developers to refine their products.  An equal opportunity employer, I've also taken my immigrant's perspective and applied it faithfully; offering training and guidance to people across all walks of life, all around the world.
