1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I knew when I was 13 years old that I wanted to be a recording engineer. It's always intrigued me how various sounds were recorded and mixed.

2. What training have you had?

I have no formal training. I came up in the business at a time when there were no engineering schools. So I've learned everything from the ground up on my own.

3. When did you get into recording?

One of my first jobs when I was 15 was for the audio visual department at Andrews University. I started recording live music for the campus at many events.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, Kenny Loggins, Boyz II Men and many more. My full credits are here: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/tony-shepperd

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Because I didn't have the opportunity to learn under someone else, I've always tried to make my process of recording and mixing as simple and easy to understand as possible. Watching someone do this is much easier than just reading a book or hearing a lecture on it.
