Since 2013, I've been a podcast host, producer, editor, and guest, and from time to time have taught an 'intro to podcasting' class at AS220 Industries. You can find a list of my current podcast-related projects on the Podcasts page.

If you are interested in hiring me as a recording engineer, or as an editor, then you can find information about my rates and what you can expect below. As I do more of this kind of work, I may want to revise my pricing scheme. In that case, I'll give you as much warning time as I can, so you can decide how you want to handle it.


My rate for editing is $25/hour, with the normal estimate being that it will take four times as much time to edit an episode as there is audio (so half an hour of audio = two hours of editing time). The minimum charge is $25.

I will also do two additional rounds of revisions and re-editing at no additional charge, and minor adjustments will normally not be for any additional cost.

If there are special circumstances, or problems with the recordings that mean that a particular session will require extra editing, then I'll let you know in advance what's going on, with an estimate of how much additional time it will take.

Recording Engineer

If you live in the Providence area, and we have compatible schedules, then I can go to a recording studio or other location and act as a recording engineer. Note that I work a full-time job, and unfortunately am not normally available 9 am-6 pm during the week.

My current rate for engineering is $25/hour, in units of half an hour, with a one hour minimum. If the setup is going to be complicated, and I anticipate long setup or breakdown times, then this will be charged at a similar rate. I will give you an estimate in advance if I anticipate this.

I can use my own equipment, or, if you are recording at the AS220 Media Lab's editing suite, I can use theirs. If I use my own, I can provide:

After the recording session, I will provide the audio in separate tracks, as .wav, .aiff, or .mp3 files. The files will normally be sent to you via Dropbox or Google Drive. If you prefer a different format, then let me know, and I will let you know if I can accommodate you. (In most cases, I should be able to.)
