My passion and love for production sound has afforded me spectacular opportunities and adventures over the years. From the wilderness bush country of Zimbabwe to the majestic temples of Kyoto, Japan, I've been blessed to walk in many of life's shoes. I am often asked what my favorite location or story was. This is a very difficult question to answer.... Perhaps, its simply.... The next one.

Inside I'll be sharing some of my adventures as well as some informative tips to help along the next generation sound professional!

Thank you for taking the time to drop by and I hope you enjoy your stay!
