Profile Information

I grew up in Baltimore, MD. I am currently running FOH/monitors at local bars and clubs, as well as some corporate and theater A/V and weddings. I've been described as being good at "combat audio" or being thrown into ALL types of shows and situations and making sense of chaos. I am a critical thinker and stay on my toes. I stay calm and handle every situation with a full professional attitude. Though I am most experienced with audio, I have skills in camera operation, video, and even lighting. I am a team player and love to encourage others with a positive attitude.
