Production Sound Mixer in Phoenix AZ

I am a result’s driven Sound Recordist, who focuses regularly on more than just the acquisition of location sound. With an assortment of top of the line sound department "tools", I strive for accurate sound, without disrupting the flow of the production. I am knowledgeable, personable, and flexible. With over ten years experience in a Top 15 market, I have familiarity in almost every facet of Media Production. I play in both worlds of big budget and small, always prepared to deliver professional quality audio.

Beyond just the acquisition of audio on location, my focus is to provide clean, intelligible, high-fidelity tracks. My goal is to get it right the first time, every time. Joe Bohannon, Owner
