On The Road, In The Studio

If you're thinking of recording a few hundred Pan Pipes at Lake Titikaka.... IMax scores in Prague.... Concerti in Krakow..... Chamber music in Moab grottos..... Piano Competitions in Fort Worth…… or Live broadcasts from Carnegie Hall, call me. I’ve done it.


Having used (or made) Control Rooms in audio trucks, video trucks, greenrooms, and restrooms, I’ve always enjoyed the challenge and spontaneity of capturing music at its best: in acoustically flattering venues where the musicians are energized by the space and the moment.


Over the years, I’ve developed a well-designed complement of recording gear, and use it as a complete FlyPack system, or to simply augment a studio’s inventory with specialized Microphones, Preamps, and Converters.


The art of recording is the engineer's ability to be a seamless liaison to technology. Having the right tools makes it all much easier and way more fun.

At the present time, my kit is centered around: Neumann, Sennheiser, Schoeps, Bruel and Kjaer, Geffel, Sanken and Coles mics. Millennia and remotely controlled Grace Mic PreAmps Prism, Mytek, Grace, and Apogee converters.
