About Me

 
Keegan

I built a career on doing what I love.

…and I love too many things just to give up all but one of them.

After spending my teenage years creating music videos and building a fanbase of over 4000 subscribers on YouTube, I moved on to earning two degrees at McGill University*.

I now work as a classical recording engineerphotographer and videographer in Montreal. In the audio world, I’m most proud of my work editing and mixing for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada (Spotify or iTunes).

I have also produced and recorded albums for multiple bands and solo artists.

And I work as a sound designer, editor and mixer for film post-production.

One time, in summer of 2018, I was offered a few jobs as a boom op film sets, and thus was born my new love for location sound recording and mixing. My previous technical and practical knowledge certainly made for a quick and seamless transition into this world. I now focus primarily on working on documentaries and short films as a location sound mixer. I really love it.

I’d LOVE to work with more documentary filmmakers to travel and record location sound. And I’ll bring my camera… that would certainly be useful.

I’ve also done some other cool stuff, like spent a summer at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity as a recording engineer practicum (where I got my deep-seated love for hiking). And I headed a band for a while.

Working with cameras my whole life, I developed an eye for photography wherever I happened to be. So beginning in January 2019, I started shooting lifestyle portraits and events professionally. What a dream!

How I can help YOU

  • I’ll do location sound on set and post-prod. sound design, editing and mixing. If it’s a documentary, wedding, corporate event or similar, I’ll operate a B-camera (if I’m not using a boom microphone).

  • I’ll take portraits or do your event photography.

  • Sometimes I’ll film something. Events, art, dance… you name it!

I often don’t work alone. With the contacts I’ve made so far in the industry, I can put together the perfect team to create a media powerhouse and meet any project’s needs.
