I've been helping my clients with their studios, PA systems and musical instruments for over twenty years now. Half of that time has been right here at Sweetwater. I started working in my local music store when I was seventeen and since then I've been fortunate enough to work with hundreds of musicians, engineers, broadcasters, churches and schools. Being able to learn from this group of talented and technical minds has given me a truly diverse background. I love using this experience to help my clients reach their audio aspirations. Working at Sweetwater has been a rewarding and unique experience. I think you will find that there is no other place with as many resources to help its customers succeed.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

I have a bachelors degree in construction science with a minor in sociology. I'm Avid, Apple, Auralex certified. I also trained under a luthier for two years.
The great state of Texas. I was born in College Station, Gig'em Aggies! I've also lived in Mexico, France and South Africa.
I was a live sound engineer and recording engineer. I ran a music store, a restaurant and many church sound systems.
Recording, Pro Tools, Virtual Instruments, keyboards, synthesizers, Live sound and Church sound.
I've played keyboards and bass in many original and cover bands. I play the synthesizer, which is quite different from playing keyboards. I also play guitar and African drums.
A few favorite pieces: Vintech X73i, UA 4710, Drawmer E101, Roland RE-201, Dangerous Liaison, Dangerous DBox, RME FirefaceUFX, Pro Tools, Sequencial Circuits Pro One, Access Virus, Rhodes Fifty Four, Fender Am PBass, Fender Am Strat, QSC K10 Speakers.
My lovely wife Rachel who graciously lets me keep way too much gear in the house. Daughters Whitney and Violet and son Cole.
I've worked with several of our industry's largest manufacturers developing sound libraries for the Akai S series samplers, Ensoniq EPS/ASR, Sony Acid, and plugin presets for AIR virtual instruments. I've designed custom acoustic treatment and furniture products for recording studios and churches.
Food! Specifically dark chocolate, Blue Bell ice cream and authentic Mexican food.
I was a monitor engineer for many years. Some shows go smoothly, others are chaotic with the whole band shouting at you at one time. Either way, you have to juggle several mixes at once, keep your musicians happy, and keep the show going. In many ways it's very similar to how we work at Sweetwater.
Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.
Kathy from Wilmington, NC
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!
David from Renton, WA
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
Chrystal from McMinnville, TN
From the customer service call after my order, to e-mailing me a copy of the invoice, to the great price, free shipping and candy in the box...a pleasure!
