My passion for music stems back to my childhood from using an organ to develop an ear for melody and learn polkas with my father. I picked up acoustic guitar in high school and immediately fell in love, and It wasn't too long after that I bought my first electric guitar. At the start of college, I pursued mechanical engineering to follow my love for mathematics and science while taking music classes and piano lessons on the side. It was also around this time that I dove into the fun world of MIDI and synthesis. Eventually, music became an all encompassing entity that I desperately wanted to pursue, but I also still wanted stay connected to engineering in some way. I gravitated towards audio engineering and obtained a Bachelors degree in Audio Arts and Acoustics where I developed and honed my skills in music production, post production, and sound design. Aside from engineering, I also love to compose and record my own music projects.
I look forward to the opportunity to help you with any of your music and audio needs!

I have a Bachelors of Arts in Audio Arts and Acoustics from Columbia College Chicago. My concentration was in Audio Design and Production.
I grew up in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, which is a northwest suburb of Chicago.
I want to use my knowledge in music and audio to help people get the gear they will love for years.
I'm a guitarist, singer-songwriter who started on acoustic guitar and picked up electric guitar not too long after. I also play piano and enjoy spending time messing around with synthesizers.
I own a Taylor 210e, PRS SE Custom 24, Yamaha P-105, Akai MPK249, Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, and a pair of Yamaha HS8's.
I'm an avid Chicago sports fan. I also love to play basketball and golf whenever I get the chance.
My favorite magazine is Tape Op. It offers a lot of insight into the great minds of the industry.
My guilty pleasure of choice is most likely Miley Cyrus's Party in the USA. But is it really guilty if you feel no shame?
When I was really young, I was obsessed with airplanes which lead to a desire to be a pilot. A little later in life I wanted to design roller coasters. But once music really came forward, there was no turning back.
It's great being around people who all have a big passion for music. The staff here is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also extremely talented.
Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.

Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!

I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop
