Personal Info:

I am a 20-year veteran of the audio industry and finally decided to go out and do it

for myself! I put together three different systems, bought a truck and started telling

everyone I can think of. Wish me luck!

Music, fashion, cooking, home studio.

Equipment:

My consoles are Allen & Heath GL-2200 series 32 and 24 and a (dare I say it?) Mackie

1604. Amps are all Crown. Speaker systems are Martin, EAW and JBL. Outboard

is mostly BSS, with a couple TC Electronic M-1s and a D-2. Also Ashly EQs on the

monitors. Mics are the usual SM 58s and 57s, Beta 57s, Beta 58s D112, D-6 as well as

Beta 52. Sennheiser 421s, ATM Pro 25s and AKG & Rode condensors.
