I am a former educator with over 20 years of live sound reinforcement experience. Thanks to my education experience, I am intimately familiar with the needs, budgetary restraints, and purchasing processes of educational institutions. While teaching elementary and secondary classes, I produced audio, video, and lighting for various venues. I also sequenced music, ranging from three minute cues to 90 minute shows, for several clients. I am still involved in live production and have expanded to live recording, using my experience to provide the very best support for my clients. My music training has also given me performance opportunities on various instruments in many different styles, which benefits my performing customers.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

In addition to my music education degree, I completed Sweetwater University, and hold Avid, Focusrite RedNet, SSL, Vivitek, and Agogee certifications.
As a teacher, I was taking on more technology and production responsibilities because of my prior experience. I decided it was time to make a choice between education and technology. Thanks to Sweetwater's education division, I was able to combine the two.
Live sound, computer recording, MIDI sequencing, and virtual instruments
Avid MBox Pro, M-Audio CX5, Yamaha MSP5, and Yamaha HS50M monitors, M-Audio Keystation 88es, Rode NT5, NT2A, NT2000, K2, M3, Sonar X2 Producer, and Studio One Professional.
I am married with beautiful twin daughters.
I have an abnormal obsession with computer encryption and security. I am continually upgrading and tweaking my home network even though there is no reason for anyone to try to hack it. When I think about anything, I have to make a new spreadsheet.
When no one is around I will play video games, then deny it if asked.
I wanted to understand the signal flow of every electronic system I came across, so I took time to follow every cable I could find from the television at home to the sound system at church.
I tell people I work in a big toy store. I love being able to get my hands on the latest gear and use it myself.

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!
