Our favorite gigs are the ones with a story to tell. Let us help you tell your story.

Hello!

I’m Steve Lack, CAS. I’m a podcast producer, sound designer, audio mixer, and music & dialog editor. I work remotely from my world-class Steve Lack: Audio studio. But it’s not just me. I have a closely-knit team of dedicated contractors I call on whenever the need arises. Together, we make sure you’re covered.

With the latest collaborative tools, up-to-date gear and two decades of experience working for major media outlets like Warner Bros Discovery, Nat Geo, al Jazeera and NPR, we’ll bring our creative and technical expertise to your project to help you tell your story.

Oh, and if you reach out to me on an unbooked but otherwise beautiful day, you might hear sounds of the Chesapeake Bay in the background as I tend to my sailboat.
