Ted’s work has earned numerous PromaxBDA Awards, New York Festivals, CTAM Mark Awards and Emmys. He sound designed the feature Pitch, which was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival as well as mixed the MTV documentary Translating Genocide: Three Students Journey to Sudan, which earned two Emmys and a Beacon Award.

Ted’s innate sense of rhythm derives from his lifelong experience as a musician. After over a decade as a professional audio engineer, Ted took his music skills to the next level collaborating with influential rock band the Meat Puppets. They brought him on as the drummer for their 2006 reunion and he spent four years writing, performing and touring with the band as well as recording two full-length albums.

Ted studied psychology at the University of Connecticut but discovered his passion for all things audio when he fell into a gig at a local public access channel. He quickly made his way to NYC and started his career at National Recording Studios, working up the ranks from assistant to audio engineer. He moved on to work as a mixer/sound designer at Jeco Music/Stolen Car Productions and Clack Sound Studios, mixing top broadcast projects. In 2000, he brought his audio expertise to MTV’s On-Air Promos division, spearheading the development of its in-house audio facility. After over six years at MTV, Ted seized an opportunity to tour with the Meat Puppets, continuing to take on mix assignments during breaks. In 2010 Ted joined Ultrabland. Throughout his career, he has fostered a continually growing list of repeat clients, collaborating with HBO, Cinemax, FX, NatGeo and others on a wide range of spots.

Welcome Ted!

Is Your EP As Cool As Robin Hall? We Think Not.

We’ve been out of our minds from the minute we got wind of Northern Lights EP Robin Hall’s previous incarnation as front man for Jack Ruby, yes, Jack Ruby. Monday night – when we got to see him scream himself hoarse – was just perfect. Danny Gregory captures it all beautifully right here

Who Knew We’d Have A Chance To Do This Much Good?

In 2014, Michele founded Project 0, a global campaign to restore the health of the ocean.
