Hi, I'm Tom Butcher.

I love bringing ideas to life. My work is at the intersection of music, audio, and technology, and I am a firm believer that when good ideas and stories are realized they can profoundly impact people’s lives in meaningful ways.

In my career, I have enjoyed the good fortune of working on a wide variety of ventures with some amazing people. Ever since I was a kid, I loved the way electronic music and audio sounded, and as soon as I could I began creating my own music and compositions with whatever I could find. I also was fascinated by computing, gaming, and eventually the Internet. Through my experience in the media and technology worlds, I’ve been able to take countless ideas and make them real. My experience includes creating successful businesses, creating dozens of musical releases, developing innovative musical technology, building teams from the ground up, and creating patented intellectual property.

But enough about me. This page is here because I want to connect with you. I am interested in freelance opportunities to apply my creativity, drive, skills, and know-how to your project.

• Music composition and production • Audio recording, engineering, and post-production
• Product and project management for digital music and audio technology • Talent development, mentorship, and leadership

Let's get to work.
