Full Circle Mastering is founded by Mark Trewella.

For as long as I can remember I have been absolutely fascinated by sound and music.  At the age of 10 my musical journey began with the guitar.  As the years passed I started experimenting with multitrack recording, electronic instruments and computers as a means of capturing my creative ideas.  This interest and desire to explore sound led me to attend audio school in Vancouver, Canada.  After graduation I found myself living and working in New York City.  I spent the next few years working in sound design.  While sound for visual media was very rewarding I knew deep down I wanted to work directly with music.

Mastering always intrigued me.  When it came time to figure out what aspect of music production I wanted to specialize in I knew without question it was mastering.  This led to an apprenticeship at Scott Hull Mastering in Midtown Manhattan.  There I was able to learn the craft first hand from some of the best, most experienced mastering engineers in the industry.  Alongside Scott, Dave McNair and Randy Merrill were working there at the time as well.  I was very fortunate to be ‘shown the ropes’ so to speak at a young age by these talented people.

Upon relocating to Philadelphia, PA in 2009 I decided to offer my ears, skills and knowledge to others by opening my own independently run mastering studio.
