How did you become a producer/sound engineer?
I started teaching myself how to produce when I was 14. I spent the next 4 years learning while creating an album I released when I was 18.
What advice would you give students either going into school or just graduating about getting a job in this industry?
I am in the same boat as you, so I could use advice just as much as you.
What are the major qualities required to be a good sound engineer in your opinion?
To be a good sound engineer, you have to figure things out for yourself. Pay attention and find your own opinions on what sounds good regardless of what anyone else says. That being said, it is also so useful to get feedback from other people on the way that your work sounds.
What is your recording/producing philosophy?
Make every second count.
What producers/engineers inspire/inspired you?
