Biography

Nathan’s pioneering days as a young teenager (like many in the audio engineering industry) were spent skipping meals & sleep so as to record in his bedroom, much to the parents & neighbour’s chagrin. Nathan progressed up the rock n' roll food chain and into live sound at 18 years old which became his base income for around 15 years. During this time Nathan worked as an assistant at several large studios in Sydney including Damien Gerard Studios, Festival Studios while simultaneously freelancing for bands at most main studios in Sydney at one time or another which resulted in Nathan becoming the head engineer for Jonathan Burnside at his Razors Edge studio complex by the beach in Coogee, Sydney. Over the years Nathan has had several studio incarnations of his own, always building up his personal collection of equipment. Now some 25 years later, his audio addiction is stronger than it's ever been and Nathan owns and runs his studio called 'Mixosmosis' in Sydney. It is from here that Nathan works on all of his projects, be they recording & mixing, mastering, television & film audio post-production, including 5.1 surround. Nathan’s ethos is “I work hard at my craft because I simply love it, and when I get a song hitting all the events a good mix should, nothing gives me more satisfaction.
