I am originally from southeastern Pennsylvania (Bucks County) and relocated to New Haven to study Music & Sound Recording (UNH BA ’93). Early in my tenure as a student I was fortunate to take on a position as an assistant engineer at a local studio that developed into the opportunity to build a world class recording facility during my senior year.
I am appreciative that my music industry career over the past 20+ years stems from serving as an engineer or assistant for legendary producers and top industry engineer/producers including: Nile Rodgers, Pip Williams, Danny Kortchmar, Paul Leka, Elliot Scheiner, Kevin Shirley, Niko Bolas, and Gary Tole. I have also had the honor to work for Disney, Sony BMG, GRP, Arista, Mercury, and NFL Films, just to name a few.
In 2005 I was approached by UNH to join the University as a Professional in Residence and to teach modern music technology as well as advanced recording classes. Since then I have been promoted to Lecturer and have taken on the role as Recording Studio Manager to manage all of the music department’s recording facilities and computer lab.
On a more personable side, I am an avid hockey fan and play a few times per week as a goaltender and defensemen. I enjoy performing upgrades to my home, particularly woodworking, electrical, and home networking. I absolutely love music and play drums, percussion, bass, sing, and still a little bit of clarinet. I listen to most genres but lean towards jazz, classical, progressive rock, classic rock, metal core, alt. metal, alternative, etc.
