I have been an entrepreneur and self-employed artist (as well as employer) for many years in the arts and music. I have two artist focused businesses with my wife of 30 years.  My primary work is in the studio for production, bass and guitar. I also work regularly with integral gear companies on audio sessions, video demos, beta testing, community building, consulting, tech work and social marketing interaction and product support. I help bridge the gap between artist/musician and tech. I have an extensive history in the gear industry as a tech/consultant/artist. A few of the companies who have commissioned me for work are: Tascam, Roland, Seymour Duncan, Nick Silver Pickups, Lollar Pickups, Carr Amplifiers, D-Tar, Warwick Basses, Fender, Schecter, Custom Tones, Alesis and many high-end boutique builders, touring musicians and gear designers…

On A Personal Note

Some of my own personal daily interests include bass practice, guitar practice, 70's fusion music, gear tweaking, instrument setup and repair, gear research, reading, science, theology, philosophy, fitness, tattoos, the healing arts, self-development, business, metaphysics, nutrition and natural medicine. I have degrees and multiple certifications in many of those areas as well as CD's, books and programs I have authored within those fields of study over the course of my life while maintaining my career in music. I enjoy a great library of books I love to engage with. 

If I can be of service, send me a message. I would love to talk with you and hear what you are doing and see how I can help. I have many industry references, referrals, professional recommendations and 100s of examples! Namaste, Cheers, Thank You, Shalom, Blessings or any other salutation you will receive!
