1. When did you start dabbling in music?

The earliest memory I have is when I was 7 years old - I got my first guitar. When I was 9 I got my first keyboard.

2. What training have you had?

Mostly self-trained; however, I was the drum major in high school (playing alto sax & drums/percussion), and majored in music for a short time.

3. When did you get into recording?

When I was around 10 years old I started to basic multi-tracking with my dual tape deck stereo. I would record a keyboard part; move that cassette into the other deck and do a playback while recording a new part into the "record" deck. Voila! Ghost tracks were something I hated back then!!

4. People you have worked with/for?

Let's see ... there was that fast food joint, the grocery store, the bolt company, the theater ...

5. Why are you so good at training people?

OK, how much did my mom pay you to say that I'm "good"? I guess it's because I try to have fun while showing folks what to do. If I get bored while making a video, I'm quite sure that the viewer will not be too stoked to watch it. I want people to feel like they could kick off their shoes, relax, and watch a video where they might learn something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In depth and engaging This guy is presents very well. It feels as though we're sitting around having a beer and he's walking me through the SD2 software. It's a very engaging presentation style. Every feature of the software is covered for a fairly in depth overview. The software is so powerful and flexible however that it is limited only to your own creativity. I wanted to know how to make midi nodes that trigger different samples at different velocities. This tutorial does not explain that directly but explains all the tools so well that I can now play around with confidence and create what I was after. If you have SD2 and can't be bothered reading a manual - watch these videos!!!
