“I love to work with Brian! He’s passionate and creative in his mixes while keeping full precise
control on the music material. I’ve learned a lot from him, as he likes to share his knowledge
which literally embraces every possible style of music! He’s literally able to mix a jazz tune
one day, hit a hard rock song the next, and relax with a soundtrack score the following day,
while keeping his focus and quality on every project. Probably his secret is that he likes
to spread good humor around, and this is why sessions with him are fun and creative!”

Emanuele Ruffinengo, Producer, Arranger, and Composer, Mad Hatter Studios

“It was a pleasure working with Brian. We worked together to get a lot done in a small
