Fredo attended IADT-Tampa, graduating in ’09 with a BFA in Recording. He has since had a 6-month internship at Mercenary Audio and in their studio, The Meth Lab, before moving across the country to San Diego and taking intern residence at Signature Sound. Fredo’s passion for Audio Recording is motivating, and his knowledge and skills are impressive, which made him an easy pick to be Studio Manager eventually. He has taken heavy influence from engineers like Christian Cummings, Chris “Zuess” Harris, Andy Wallace, and Daniel Castleman, as well as anyone who has taught him a trick or two. Being a big advocate of the sound of outboard gear and the accuracy of digital, Fredo aims to be the best he can be in the integration of the two. He strives to continuously better his abilities behind the recording console.
