Laboratory Owner, Studio A Resident Producer, Engineer
Neil, a Bay Area Native, grew up surrounded by music. He began playing at a young age, and discovered his passion for the ‘process’ after seeing how his father composed, arranged, and recorded his own records in the 80’s and 90’s.
Neil holds a B.S in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he specialized in Computing and Human Perception. After over a decade in tech (Google, Raytheon, Amazon) and finance (Calypso, Opulent Lite), Neil switched gears and took over engineering and production work at the world famous Studio D at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco (2009-2011).
In 2011, Neil was named successor to the long enduring Bayview Studios in the East Bay. After renovating, updating, and establishing a new business model, the studio reopened in mid-2011 as Airship Laboratories.
At Airship Laboratories, Neil brings his interdisciplinary experience and background to production and engineering. Neil has collaborated with producers, songwriters, film directors, dance companies, and many musicians. His credits include Larry Coryell, George Brooks, Alam Khan, Salar Nader, Osam Ezzeldin, Selvaganesh, The Chitresh Das Dance Company, Farah Yasmeen Shaikh, Midi Matilda, Cosmic Machine, The Greening, and many others.
