Recording & Audio Production

I’m just starting to turn my music recording hobby into a professional service. This means you can get really high-quality stuff at an affordable price.

I’m still a learner, but I work doggone hard to get it right and give helpful feedback along the way. Listen to my work.

Ryan makes our small team of 3 people sound like we have a production team of 20. His ability to record and mix audio—and create all custom, analog music and effects from scratch—is unmatched in the industry. In the endless sea of podcasts, there is truly nothing like his sound.
— Kelsey Lundberg, storyteller for Strange Transmissions
Ryan brings an endless amount of positivity to an environment, social, professional, or otherwise. He’s intelligent, dedicated to whatever he’s involved in, and can get along with anyone he comes across.

Music is something Ryan lives for. Not only is he a creative and impeccable drummer, but that spaceship of a pedalboard is something he navigates well. His recording techniques are impressive and constantly improving, and his ability to create or repair effects pedals, and electronics of all kind, is a skill one doesn’t come across frequently.
— Max Boeke, Lions and Creators

Recording Space

My recording space is in my home right in the Twin Cities. It's got a quaint cabin-like feel. Perfect for when you crave the smell of cedar siding and wood burning in the fireplace, but can’t make the trip up north. 

When you need a break, just chat with the dogs, walk down to the lake, or drink a beer on the porch.
