1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I come from a family of casual musicians, mostly pianists. When I was very young, I learned to play piano, then forgot it all when I was teenager and then discovered guitar and bass...

2. What training have you had?

Formal training? Almost none. But I've made every mistake one could make in the world of recording and learned from every one of them. I've also had the privilege of interning with some very knowledgable studio techs and engineers and consider that a very valuable education.

3. When did you get into recording?

As a teen in the 90's, my band needed a way to get our music on CD, but our budget was very limited. We pooled our parent's money and bought a cheap Tascam 4-track tape recorder. Since I was the resident geek, it was my job to figure out how to record a 5-piece band with only 4 tracks and 2 SM57s. When I discovered overdubbing, my mind was officially blown. Then I discovered software and digital recording and became an instant lifelong addict.

4. People you have worked with/for?

The vast majority of my work as an engineer, studio tech or producer has been for projects I was personally involved in, or for close friends. However, I have had the opportunity to work with several notable Bay Area studios over the years. Including a bit of work at the Wash House, famous for their work with late rapper Mac Dre.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I consider the pursuit of knowledge a lifelong journey, and I've always been willing to share what I know with others... Perhaps to a fault. I've been known to speak at length on subjects for which there is no justifiable reason to know so much... I just enjoy teaching, and enjoy digital recording. I think the only things you need to train are knowledge and passion, and I'd like to believe that I have those in spades!
