Bio
Raised in Las Vegas I started into the backstage life around 16 loading in shows, pushing boxes, and learning thru my mistakes. hundreds of shows later
I was behind the board at the Thomas and Mack Center learning about 10000 seat arena sound engineering and I can tell you its quite a science.
Even showbuisness in vegas has its slow periods so I allways kept a second job, which ranges form construction, Heavy Equipment, Fire Fighting, Mechanical engineering. and you know what I learned?..

Sound Waves play a key role in EVERYTHING! its amazing! Buildings have sympathetic Harmonic Freaquency's which taught me about Sympathetic Vibratory Physics. Im such a geek...

The need to pay the rent compeles us forward and the work varies from running crews to FOH positions to the hardest position in the house.
MONITOR ENGINEER
the monitor engineer has THE hardest job in the house working directily with the talent, (who) is standing infrony of a Powered speaker Aimed at a Live mic which is played back into the powered speaker and at a distance of about 6 feet..
and your the negotiator between the singer (who wants to Hear himself above the blairing amps behind him) and the
Looming Show wrecker "Feedback"!

It takes an intimate knowlage of not only frequencies, but, What the room is going to throw at you!

If you havent hung your head in shame after throwing feedback thru the mains
you havent mixed a show. and let me tell you the dude on stage right standing infront of the smaller board sweating like a pig in a room so cold you could hang meat in knows what Im talking about.

With that knowlege of frequencies you can have knowlege of things like the difference between wood floors and concrete floors. when it comes to frequencies.
this collective experiance helps when selecting materials and selecting mic's..
it is the formula to knowing How to build a room, and subsequently how to mic a room.

More About Me
Im a geek.. I watch "how its made"

I do ride a harley.. I dive. I hike.

but I would rather come over to your house and work on some garage project where we build somthing than watch a foot ball game and drink beer.

Call me weird.

Music that paints a picture could be the preoccupation of my existance, the persuit of that soundtrack that plays out like a movie from track to track like chapter to chapter taking the listner on a journey thru a visual world created by the imagination, with the music as the catalyst.
