I have assisted just about everyone with any interest in audio within the comfines of my small town. I have became the official "Sound Man of Tipton County", providing sound for every church, school, band, festival, or party. I became the man who knew how to set up the PA System at the school. Instead of calling the actual technician, the would actually interupt class and ask for me by name, unannounced, to go to the gym, cafeteria, or football field. Honestly it almost became annoying.
I decided I could do this on my own. So, I began building MY PA System. This endeavor had strict guidelines, I never went into debt!, and I didn't buy a piece of equipment unless it was the exact one I wanted/needed, no compromises, no weak links. I have been building this system for four years. Its still not what I want it to be, but its a beast and will last forever.
I then made the biggest mistake of my life, I opened my big mouth. At a local Boy Scout Event, I noticed that there was not PA System for the speaker, the audience was upwards of three hundred, and It was outside. I offered mine, and then became the official FREE sound guy for WTAC.
Then, I moved on the bigger and better things,... Memphis. I did gig after gig. If a band wanted to play a show, whether they had a PA or not, most of the time, they called me! Every bar and venue in town has my card, if a band needs help, they don't even ask them, they just call for me like its an emergency situation. I became the Live Sound Paramedic.
Now!!!... I'm going to college. I looked high and low for the college for me. The best 4 year University with THE BEST audio engineering program in the Nation. I found it!!! Belmont University in Nashville, TN. Located at the end of "Music Row", most of you know it as the host of the 2008 "Town Hall Presidential Debate" with John McCain and Barack Obama. They have the best studios, the best PA Systems, the best professors, and the best experience
