Audio Editor

I have been podcasting since the summer of 2006. For the past 8 plus years I have edited thousands of audio files for businesses, brands, and my own podcasting endeavors. Over the years I have learned many tips and tactics to improve my audio editing workflow, save time, and avoid injury from the volume of files I produce each week.

I have been creating digital products and teaching others for the past several years. I enjoy helping others and do my very best to convey what's necessary and leave out all the hype.
