What type of studio do you have?
I am in the process of converting half an unfinished basement into a dedicated music studio. Construction has stopped for the winter as it is about 33 degrees down there now (Brrrr). Just need to do the electrical wiring, sheetrock, ceiling tiles, and some carpeting. (Oh yes, and I'll put a nice gas heater in there too!) Until that room is finished, I am going to be doing some computer-based recording using SONAR 2 XL.
What type of work do you do?
I am a professional technical writer. I used to work for software companies, but decided to start my own biz ~7 years ago and have been running that ever since. I do a lot of different document-related services, including conversions and such. I have always been a good creative writer, but that's a tough way to make a buck, so I ended up in the tech field. I am starting to do a lot of song writing now to (finally) appease my creative side. My goal is to someday be able to support myself as a song writer.
How long have you been working in the Industry?
I did a lot of live playing back in my late teens (mid-eighties), working with wedding bands, playing proms and such. I gave it all up when I went to college, and then got so busy working that I never got back into it. I desperately miss playing music and am making a conscious effort to get back into the game before mid-life comes crushing down.
Do you work in the Industry full time?
No. I am currently not in the industry at all, but hope to be in the coming years!
