Since 2013, I've been a podcast host, producer, editor, and guest, and occasionally teach 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.

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.)


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.
