Chester is a location sound mixer and post-production engineer with over ten years experience working in audio engineering, music performance, and tour management. Recent projects have included production of a nine part fiction podcast for Audible, re-recording mixing for two Adult Swim specials, and various location sound mixing in the Baltimore/DC area.

As a music producer, Chester collaborated with some of Baltimore's breakthrough artists including Future Islands and Dan Deacon, with the Baltimore Sun calling him "the city's best producer of indie-rock". As a live sound engineer, he spent several years working with (now defunct) Wham City Lights, creators of a smartphone app that used ultra high frequency audio to trigger interactive lightshows. Clients included Disney Land, Cirque du Soleil, the NHL, and America's Got Talent.

Chester's raison d'etre is post-production. Whether mixing a record or restoring degraded audio, his work exhibits an attention to detail and a subtle hand. He is proficient at ProTools, comfortable with 5.1 surround, and mixes for C.A.L.M. Act compliance.

Chester has a B.M. from SUNY Purchase College.

When not working in audio production, you may find him on tour with his band Outer Spaces. They are releasing their second LP in June 2019.
