Live Sound Engineer

Need an engineer? contact me for availability

I listen. Live sound reinforcement is about more than sound. As an engineer I am part of a team; I am not there to simply mic up instruments and provide a professional mix but to also work with the band, the production staff, the venue staff and the audience. I am all ears at all times.

Every room is unique. Every performance is unique. As an experienced live sound engineer I am aware of the responsibility I am trusted with by the performer as well as by the audience and the venue. My job is balancing: balancing frequencies, dynamics, instruments, voices and rooms; balancing the energy of a live performance with the appropriate volume for the space it's in; balancing the variety of needs of every person in the audience.

Music Industry Professional

The most valuable asset to any professional in the music business is experience. I have over a decade of experience that includes a variety of roles and accomplishments.

 

I graduated with a B.A. in Music Industry (with minors in both Audio Production and Philosophy) from SUNY Oneonta where I developed a strong foundation that I would begin building upon after graduation. Internships at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, NY and Revolution Hall in Troy, NY introduced me to many practical realities of the industry and led to a job with local sound company, Live Sound, Inc. that provided me with countless valuable experiences working with productions of all shapes and sizes in venues of all shapes in sizes.

 

I began working with Irish-American rock band Hair Of The Dog and became their FOH engineer where I learned how to mix a variety of instruments in a variety of venues from churches and halls to amphitheaters and festivals.

 

From 2013 to 2021 I was the FOH engineer for Irish-American rock band Get Up Jack, a 6 piece band that includes 6 vocalists and a variety of instruments including harmonica, banjo, drum kit, electric and upright bass, steel drum and more. With this band I expanded my skill set and have strengthened my ability to work with a variety of consoles and systems in a variety of locations and situations from indoor and outdoor venues from festivals in Kingston, NY, Manchester, VT, Herkimer, NY to pubs and concert halls in Saratoga Springs, NY, Glastonbury, CT and Galway, Ireland.

 

I have mixed in many local venues including The Linda: WAMC's Performing Arts Studio, Lark Hall, Swyer Theater at The Egg, The Hollow and Parish Public House. Some of the artists I have worked with include Jackie Venson, Mike Love, Stephane Wrembel, Karina Rykman, Wild Adriatic, Raisinhead, The Deadbeats, Girl Blue, Hayes Carll, Titus Andronicus, Mary Gauthier, Garland Jeffreys, Leslie Mendelson, Tinsley Ellis, Upstate Rubdown, Anna Nalick, The Sea The Sea, Emily Wolfe, Lo Faber, Charly Bliss and many more.
