My Experience History...
My undergraduate and graduate studies included a journalism component, and I employ my writing skills in many capacities, from radio ad copywriting, copyediting of client content, to technical subjects.
I have a strong background and experience in sound recording, and design...in studios, audio and music production. Also as an account manager for Steinberg GMBH, a worldwide developer of sound recording software and hardware.
In addition my photography and videography training enables me to add another dimension to media projects of which I am involved.
I have actively played music since I was 14 years, from bands to busking. I translate the creative process through the same musical prism. Balance, tone, loudness, softness, complexity, simplicity...to me it is all synonomous of getting your message across.
