What makes me tick is the act of being creative. I have had a passion for electronics since I was very very young. This led to me getting involved with recording gear and very nice audio systems in my home. Later on, it is what fueled the quest for the Electrical Engineering degree. It is this knowledge that gives me such a complete understanding of the recording equipment I use every day, and I am always searching for the latest and best technology to be utilized.
Throughout my career, I have served as a panelist for the PotLuck / TapeOp Recording Conventions, written for national audio magazines, created audio samples for microphone manufacturers, and have beta-tested new products for several pro-audio manufacturers including: soundcards for Digital Audio Labs and PreSonus, software for Sonic Foundry/Sony, and the 610 Complimiter by Spectra Sonics. One of my recording projects, Beyond Words, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2007. I have also had the honor of learning from and working with some of the most prominent names in the industry over the years, like Adam Ayan of Bob Ludwig’s Gateway Mastering, Bobby Owsinski, Ross Hogarth, Michael Brauer, Ryan Hewitt and many more.
In 2004 I participated in a live recording event, which I am still very proud of today. To help fund the restoration of The Great Wall of China and The Chinese Children’s Foundation, national artists Alicia Keys, Cyndi Lauper, Doyle Bramhall, Boys II Men, Sylvia Tosun, Nelly McKay, and Red Poppies performed live at The Great Wall outside of Beijing. I was hired to record all of the audio for this Great Wall of China Concert. My story was later featured in the national publication Pro Audio Review March 2005 issue. Read the full article here.
