1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing a bit of guitar and piano in the mid-60’s as a small child. Nothing really stuck until my first electric guitar and ensuing garage band in high school. By my last year of high school I was studying jazz guitar and the music bug had bitten.

2. What training have you had?

I went on to get a BFA in music (magna cum laude) from Cornish College of the Arts, emphasizing jazz guitar. Faculty at that time included Gary Peacock, Art Lande and Marius Nordal. I also completed the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, where I studied with Hummie Mann. Additionally, I have become a certified trainer for Apple’s Logic Pro software on versions 6, 7, and 8.

3. When did you get into recording?

My first home recording gear was purchased in the mid ‘80s. It consisted of a Tascam Porta One and a Roland 505 drum machine. By the late 80’s the Atari 1040 ST and Logic’s predecessor, Notator 2.0 were purchased. Digital audio didn’t arrive at the home studio until the early ‘90’s, with Digidesign’s Session 8.

4. People you have worked with/for?

My professional career has included working with Pavarotti, Vic Damone and Diahann Carroll. I have written music for commercials on television and radio and scored independent films. Studio work includes performing on as well as arranging and producing many CD projects. I have also helped many Seattle area musicians work with Logic.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I draw from my formal education, 4 years of running the Seattle Logic User Group, over 20 years of teaching music at the community college level and 30 years real-world experience working in the music business to give you a lot of insights and tips and tricks on how to use Logic to help create and refine your work.
