1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing guitar at around 13 and was in a few local bands till the early ‘80s, when I started DJ-ing at some Maryland colleges. Then I started mixing live sound for singer songwriters and bands in the Baltimore area.

2. What training have you had?

I’m mostly self taught, I learned on the job. I took a recording class at a local studio when I was just getting started, but most of what I know was learned from trial and error and from watching/listening to other engineers and producers that I worked with. I learned editing with a razor blade on analog tape and I also had one of the 1st Pro Tools rigs on the east coast, version 1.0.

3. When did you get into recording?

Carrying equipment in and out of nightclubs got old fast, and I wanted to expand my creative horizons. In the mid ‘80s, one of my friends, an exceptional singer/songwriter and student of the production techniques of The Beatles and The Beach Boys, opened the door to a whole new world of creativity for me as we worked together in my studio. In the mid ‘90s, I moved to Los Angeles and began working in the TV/Film industry as an editor/engineer/mixer/sound designer, and eventually worked my way back to producing music as well as doing TV and film work.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I was the dialogue editor for Disney’s “Tarzan” TV series and “The Lion King II”, as well as engineer mixer for Dreamwork’s “Antz” & “Road To Eldorado”, Fox TV’s “24” and “King of the Hill”, Disney’s “Snow Dogs” and various promos, trailers, commercials and indie films. I have also worked with Teddy Pendergrass, Crystal Waters, Bruce Hornsby, Dennis Chambers, Shanice Wilson, Lonnie Liston Smith, WIll Lee, 2 Live Crew, SR71, Bob Berg, Little River Band and many others. My studio in Baltimore is now the home of "Wrightway Studios" and has a huge list of clients.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have a definite passion for this stuff and teaching someone to easily do what they have been trying to learn, is a big kick for me as well as for the student, and that’s a great thing. For some reason, it’s easy for me to convey my experiences and knowledge to others.
