I am a working professional audio engineer /sound designer/producer with over 30 years experience (I have been doing it since I was 8 yrs old) I am pretty much up to date with technology although I have not gone to school for it. I prefer to work in the live concert environment although I am at home in the Recording studio as well. I am not a union member . I am willing to preform the duties of the Front of house engineer as well as Monitor engineer and I am more than willing to travel for any length of time. I give top quality audio in any situation . My local sound business is Clear Audio and has earned the name for a reason.
Thanks Sam, I will look you up, for I'm moving to Tampa very soon.
Right now I'm under contract with Rhino the former Manowar drummer to produce and release a cd. When it's done we're going to perform in Tampa somewhere. Maybe Bourbon St. in NPR. Say, have crossed paths with Brian Johnson (Ac/Dc)? He lives in Sarasota.
