Since the age of 14, I have been active as a singer/songwriter, recording and performing artist. My early teen years, were spent traveling weekends with a band called Vizion. Vizion performed over 150 times a year all over the northeastern US. After moving to Harrisburg in 1986, toured fulltime for 11 years and recording with the Christian band, Voyager. Voyager performed over 250 concerts annually and appeared at various Christian festivals and concert events, working with many national Christian artists and high schools throughout the United States.
For over 25 years, I have built a career serving others as a professional audio/lighting/video designer/ provider and have functioned as a FOH engineer for numerous professional and regional artists. I possess extensive knowledge & experience with professional audio mixing consoles of all makes and models, both analog and digital formats including Midas, Yamaha, Soundcraft, SSL, Neve, Harrison, and Allen & Heath. I have comprehensive expertise in signal processing and associated outboard audio electronics with such manufacturers as, Eventide, DBX, TC Electronics, Drawmer, Focusrite, Avalon, BSS, etc…I maintain active membership with ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishes) and currently own and operate my own sound design/installation/rental company and love leading a team to accomplish a successful event.
