Owner and chief engineer at Treehouse Sound Inc.
Mixing has always been a recurring subject in Sal's life. As a native Californian raised in Mexico, Sal has always tried to mix the best of both cultures in his personal and professional life. His interest in sound and music began at an early age in Guadalajara, Mexico. There, he discovered his love for drums at age 11 and started studying privately with some of the top drummers in the city. Later on, he started playing in his father’s band, from whom he learned the basics of sound recording.
By the time he graduated high school, Sal was an active drummer in the Guadalajara music scene and became obsessed with sound recording and mixing. This motivated him to move back to the USA. After a couple of years at Glendale Community College in Arizona, Sal received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music, where he discovered the amazing world of post production.
After graduating with honors from Berklee, Sal relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in sound.
Since 2010, Sal has had the privilege to work in some of the best music studios and post production facilities in Los Angeles like Fox Studios, The Woodshed Recording, SPG Studios, Oracle Post, Stagg Street, Los Olivos, Wild Woods, Pilgrim Studios, The Weinstein Company and World of Wonder.
Some of his credits include original series, TV shows, commercials and movies for Warner Bros. Bravo, History Channel, NatGeo, FXX, HBO, TLC, CBS, OWN, Fuse, E!, Hallmark Channel, VH1, The CW and Netflix.
In music, Sal has worked with artists like Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Pink, Cher, Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Erykah Badu, Gladys Knight, Brad Paisley, Richard Page, Vinnie Colaiuta, Luis Conte, Robert Glasper and Shenkar.
Sal has also been part of the Pre-recorded Music Programming team for major awards shows like The Oscars, The Emmys, The Academy of Country Music Awards, Kid's Choice Awards and Billboard Music Awards with engineer Pablo Munguia and his company Maraka Music.
