JC was born and raised in Connecticut before setting out to New York City to pursue a career in recording. Reaching New York, he dove into the recording industry head first, assisting at Sound Ideas and The Hit Factory, before becoming a recording and mixing engineer at Sigma Sound Studios working for Joe Tarsia. His early projects as an engineer/mixer included Madonna’s “Holiday”, Talking Heads’ “Speaking in Tongues”, and Miles Davis’ “Siesta”. JC’s work has become recognized widely, earning several Emmy awards, a Peabody award, several gold and platinum records – two of which going on to win Grammy awards – and a seat on the Grammy Nominating Committee for Engineering Excellence, to name a few of his merits. Brad Paisley, Country Music Award’s three times “Best Entertainer of the Year,” says of JC, “Nobody gets a better television mix of my band than JC.” JC was also the man behind the board when Lady Antebellum, winner of five 2010 Grammy awards, performed “Need You Now” during the GMA Summer Concert Series.
