Aside from composition and music I am a freelance audio technician. Part of that includes getting hired as an assistant sound engineer for corporate events and working as a stage hand for concerts - building stages, running/patching cables, and everything in between. Besides really loving the experiences and people I get to work with I have gained priceless knowledge as a producer and greatly enhanced my ability in the studio.
The other part includes managing audio and working as a PA for film productions, commercials, and other video based projects - which has also changed the game for me as a composer. Being on set and involved in the beginning stages of a production completely changes my perspective and opens the door to a whole new energy and connection, which in turn greatly informs the direction of the music. Interacting with the crew and engaging with the production on a deeper level has an amazing effect on how I process the music in post.
