Chris became the owner of Rocky Mountain Recorders in 2016 and is the senior engineer in Studio B. Chris' fascination with recording began when his father brought him to an orchestra tracking session for IBM. Experiencing this as a 10-year-old
was nothing short of awe inspiring. Chris has been involved in recording ever since. He arrived in Colorado after years in the New York advertising and network promo industry. Chris sharpened his skills working alongside the best engineers
and producers at studios like Lower East Side Audio and Penny Lane Studios.
Tyler is our latest addition to RMR and will be heading up audio sorcery in Studio A. His first taste of post audio was growing up listening to his father do voice overs for early cable and Pay-per-view. He received his first DAW (Digital
Audio Workstation) at fifteen and has been obsessed with recording, producing original music and sound design ever since. For the last five years, he's been creating sound design and music for digital movie campaigns, AR mobile apps, major
broadcast advertising campaigns, radio spots, short films, art films, gaming events, dome experiences, conferences and award shows.
Justin came to RMR in 2001 with skills ranging from degree-holding audio engineer, to studio technician, to handyman. He began at RMR by finishing our sound effects database, then completed installing Studio E, and then several hundred
sessions. Since working at RMR, Justin has worked with Pam Grier, John Fogarty, Snoop Dogg, Jorja Fox, and many more professionals in the commercial, music, film, and television industries. Recently Justin has taken an interest in sound
design and audio enhancement for audio forensics. But that doesn't stop him from loving to record music, and creating amazing audio for films.

Jazz is a Brittany Spaniel mixed with English Pointer. She has an affinity for fine leather couches, human food, and racquet balls. Her directing style is one of thick shade. Although this style doesn't work well for human directors, Jazz
summons the best performance from talent with an unambiguous side eye.
Josh discovered a love of audio at the age of sixteen. He began working in Pro Tools as a means of recording his own musical projects and has since acquired a degree in Audio Engineering. His professional career has spanned beyond music
recording and into post-production, live sound, and performance. When not at RMR, Josh can be found at any one of Denver's local music venues either on stage or behind the sound board.

Westword Music Showcase Awards, and her two fancy cats.
