At 17 years old, I began working utility on production trucks for NBC, sporting events and the Today Show which led to working on film sets as an audio assist (A2). In the early 1990s, when I was in college, I began freelancing for NFL Films and gained much experience with their Emmy Award™ winning crews. I soon began working as a freelance sound engineer for several production companies and networks.
My years of experience with some of the best film and broadcasting companies in the world has provided me a wide array of skills and a network of talented professionals. I am prepared for any production challange. My work has had to be broadcast quality from the beginning. I do not know amature. I am not a hobbyist. This is, and continues to be, my livelyhood.

I have been happily married for 6 years to a beautiful and understanding wife and am the father of two beautiful girls, 5 and 4.
You have heard the line "Lights, Camera, Action", right? We ask, "What about the Sound?" Why isn't sound included in that line? Isn't sound important? Have you ever had to hit mute on your remote control and watch an emotional scene in a movie? It loses all it's power. A quality still picture can stand alone to tell a story but add music to a slide-show and it's 1000% better. Moving pictures are powerless without quality audio.
I have always believed that sound is the most important element in telling "the story". It is no wonder that there are entire departments in quality production organizations that are dedicated only to producing quality audio and music. It has always been puzzling to me why some of our film interns who have graduated with a degree in film know so little about recording quality audio. We've also noticed that some of the smaller production companies we come across are very proficient with their graphic design, animation and camera movement but lack quality sound in their produced pieces.
