WHAT REALLY MATTERS.

01. KNOWLEDGE.

Audio reinforcement, sound design, speaker placement, gain structure, hardware configuration, mix position, microphone placement, wireless deployment, software integration, media management, and signal flow are integral parts of a sound audio environment. I am well practiced in the lot, and use my ever growing knowledge to avoid job site complications. I have the skills required to effectively communicate complex audio situations in a way that will leave the client confident and well informed.

02. HARDWARE.

Having the correct tools to implement a continuously variable audio set is just as important as having the knowledge to do so. My audio work box is an ever changing toolbox in which you will find many audio essentials including: cable testers, radio frequency and wireless analyzers, signal generators, measurement microphones, talkback microphones, a com switch, headphones, cable turn-arounds, adapters, an audio interface, DI’s, replacement lavaliere microphone elements, a tablet containing control software for most consoles, a computer with the latest audio software including; SMAART, Shure WWB, QLab, Dante Controller, Logic Pro, Protools, Waves, and many more.

03. EXPERIENCE.

Having the tools and knowledge is essential, but experience is the most important aspect of this job. No two events are the same and each come with their own challenges. Having the experience of working in this industry for well over a decade, has helped me reach a level of adaptability that allows me to transition between corporate and concert environments seamlessly. Being in countless troubleshooting situations has given me the readiness to address technical issues as they occur.

I do not have experience on every console or piece of gear out there, however my knowledge of gain structure, signal flow, and routing allows me to be proficient on consoles that I may not have any previous experience with. When presented with an opportunity to work with a new piece of equipment, I always do my homework to insure that I am show ready and able to tackle the common issues that can arise when operating unfamiliar gear.

LEARNING EVERYDAY.

On or off the job site, I am constantly honing my skills. Whether I am renting a new piece of gear to familiarize myself, or attending courses, seminars, training facilities, or conventions, I am always training and looking to learn about the latest gear and technique.
