Following formal studies at the University of Colorado Denver and a wealth of professional experience, Anna found a passion in mastering and restoration. She honed her craft at Airshow Mastering and after 12 years, she has now recently founded her own studio, Ally Sound. She has mastered albums for Billy Strings, GRAMMY-nominees Wood & Wire, Justin Moses, Roland Guerin, Bill Frisell, Tim O'Brien & Dale Bruning, Ben Sollee, Cyril Neville, and Third Man Records' GRAMMY-winning The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records boxed set, on which she did mastering and restoration work. She has restored historic audio for the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, Louisiana State University, Colorado State University, and the University of Calgary. Anna is also deeply involved in music industry leadership, advocacy and mentorship, in her native Colorado and beyond, through her work with The Recording Academy (serving on the National Board of Trustees), the Audio Engineering Society (AES) (serving as the Colorado Section Vice Chair), (co-founder of the Colorado Chapter), and the International Bluegrass Music Association (serving on the Board of Directors, the DEI Task Force and the Education Committee). Outside of the studio, Anna is an active member of Colorado's vibrant acoustic music scene. She can be found at concerts and festivals up and down the Front Range, supporting bands and artists at all levels.
