"I've been working with Mike for the past five years. He's my go to guy for sound augmentation and editing. Always professional, dependable and on time. A pleasure to work with and a great asset to the music scene in The Hammer."

"Mike started out as an incredible assistant, was an integral part of building Rattlebox Studios, and he quickly worked his way up to becoming an extremely talented engineer. He brings a certain musicality and creative ear to a session that always aids in the sonic outcome of a recording. Above all, Mike is a great guy to have in the studio, his calm, yet outgoing personality makes him a pleasure to work with. I expect big things from Mike in the very near future."
