Hi, I’m Mike Varela. I live in Los Angeles, between Hollywood and Korea Town. I’m an audio engineer working in the Post Production field at Chace Audio. I also engineer at the Don LaFontaine Voice Over Lab at the Screen Actors Guild Foundation. On the side I run a personal studio called NuanceTone. It’s at that studio that I mix and edit short and indie films, TV and record voice over demos for actors. I also host a bi-monthly podcast devoted to news, music, tech and general L.A. related stuff. You can find us at NuanceCast. I’ve been a DJ for 10 years now and mostly spin house music (tech, deep, jazzy and minimal). I’m fairly busy but when I have free time I study programming, languages like PHP and Python. I also cook, take photos and make time for beer when I can.
