1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I have been playing music for 35 years since I was 6 years old. I play Piano, Synth, Guitar, and program Drums.

2. What training have you had?

I have attended training workshops for the last 15 years at the music stores I worked for, as well as several offsite training centers in LA for major recording companies such as JBL, Focusrite, Apogee, and Roland.

3. When did you get into recording?

I got my first 4 track recorder at the age of 14 and have been very interested since then! (25 years ago)

4. People you have worked with/for?

I have worked with several artists including The Hawthorne Effect, The Morning Stares, Giovanni James, and worked on musical projects for Microjams, WGN and the Chicago Blackhawks, Nike, Harpo Productions and Warner Chappell Productions.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Since I was a young kid, I always liked to take things apart and figure out what made them tick so to speak. I like to do the same with software and really learn how to get the most out of it. I also really enjoy being able to use my musical abilities to help inspire those who are just starting their musical journey, as I have really enjoyed mine so far.
