I began my career at Sweetwater in June of 1998. Before that, I attended Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. While in college, I ran the college recording studio, electronic music studio, and music technology lab. During summer break of my sophomore year, I attended the Recording Workshop in Chilicothe, Ohio and earned certificates in the Music Recording and Production program, Studio Maintenance Program, and the Advanced Recording Program. Since joining Sweetwater, I have worked hard to build upon my knowledge of music technology. I have been trained at the Mackie facilities in Washington, the Roland facilities in California, obtained certifications from Avid, Focusrite, Apogee, Allen and Heath, JBL, Dangerous Audio, and many others at the Sweetwater training facilities. But my time spent with clients every day has been my greatest learning experience. From live sound systems for churches, schools, weekend bands, and national touring bands, to recording systems for the home enthusiast, up and coming producers and songwriters, or world renowned stars, to building labs and unique audio applications for schools and various government and private entities, it is through working with my clients that I learn what the gear can do and what works best to solve my customers' problems.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

While working in the electronic music lab and recording studio in college, they decided to add a technology lab and Sweetwater won the bid to supply the equipment. I was very impressed with their aptitude and knowledge, as well as the support the school received after the sale.
Drums, Guitar, Bass, and some piano.
There is way too much to mention it all, but the main pieces are my Pro Tools HDX system, Dangerous 2busLT and MonitorST, Roland TD20 V-Drums, and most importantly my Gibson 335 which my Dad bought new in 1974, gigged out with for many years and gave to me for my college graduation present.
Married since 1999 to my beautiful wife, Emily. We have 5 amazing daughters.
Other than music, I enjoy golf, working out, and philosophy. But what I look forward to most of all is spending time with my family.
Playing baseball with the Cleveland Indians (before High School when music took over my life).
The fact that it truly is a team and each person uses his or her skills to ultimately give the client the best customer experience we collectively can.
Bob Mondok is a valuable resource not only for my personal music needs, but also my church and school district. He is the reason I continue to use Sweetwater for all my personal, school and church equipment purchases. Bob goes above and beyond to ensure that Sallisaw Schools, Bethel Bapstist Church and myself get the best gear at the best prices. He is very knowledgable. I truly appreciate his expert and professional advice. What's more, he always follows through to make sure every purchase arrives and is in working order. Bob helps to set Sweetwater apart from all the other online music stores. I am proud to say that he is a personal Sales Engineer for Sallisaw Schools, Bethel Baptist Church and myself.

About a year ago, I purchased an electric bass from Sweetwater and started a business relationship with Bob Mondok. Since then, I've purchased several basses and a drum shell pack from Sweetwater and all have been delivered at a good price and excellent customer service by Bob. With all the big box musician supply houses on line now, having someone I can call when I need something is a huge benefit for Sweetwater and your customers. I can't say enough about how helpful and professional Bob has been with recommendations, pricing, and returns. I appreciate the efforts of Sweetwater and Bob.

I placed my first purchase with Sweetwater in 2009 and will continue to go to Sweetwater because of your premier customer service. I just wanted to send my praises for my sales engineer, Bob Mondok, who always goes the extra mile, and is part of the reason Sweetwater is world class in my book.
