1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started on trumpet at age 10, but got more passionate when I picked up bass and guitar in high school. During college, I had a band where I shared lead vocals and electric guitar duties. After that I was in a variety of bands usually on bass or behind the mixing board.

2. What training have you had?

I studied electrical engineering in college but mostly learned recording and music on my own. Recently, I completed the Master of Songwriting and Guitar program through Berklee Music.

3. When did you get into recording?

I have always been fascinated with tape recording since fifth grade. I started by recording demos by bouncing back and forth between two cassette decks. Later I moved on to portastudios, ADATS, pro studios, then to a DAW based project studio.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I work with songwriters world-wide as the founder and creator of LilacWriter.com - an online collaboration site for songwriters. In my career, I have done FOH, producing, songwriting, mixing, mastering, and voice over. Used to work regionally, but now requests can come from anywhere in the world.

I've written two books on audio production: "Studio One for Engineers & Producers" and "The Power in Cakewalk SONAR" both published by Hal Leonard Books.

Whenever possible, I work closely with the developers of the products I teach doing testing, bug reporting, and feature requests. I think this gives me a much deeper understanding of the products. I really enjoy seeing the products I work with improve.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have always been interested in making technology easier to use and understand. I think showing examples is essential when introducing a topic. I feel recording should be a fun and creative experience and I hope that comes across in my videos.
