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 (currently Upstate Concert Hall) 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.
That opportunity led me to my current position with Irish-American rock band Get Up Jack. I am the FOH engineer and crew manager for 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 have 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.
In addition to keeping a busy schedule with Get Up Jack I continue to work with other bands that have included: Garland Jeffreys, Tinsley Ellis, Upstate Rubdown, Anna Nalick, Raisinhead, The Sea The Sea, Big Fez & The Surfmatics, Joey Pucci & The American Longboards, The Standard Clams, Charly Bliss and more; and venues that have included: The Linda: WAMC's Performing Arts Studio in Albany, NY, Stablegate Barn in Castleton-On-Hudson, NY, Cannstatter's in Philadelphia, PA, The Parting Glass in Saratoga Springs, NY and more.
