I have been playing and recording music for the better half of my life. Learning drums and basic rhythm at 10 years old was the opening of the shutters to my way in life.
Shortly after, I got very hands on with basic recording equipment which eventually took me into a Technical Broadcast role at Classic Hits 93.1 WKPW, while a senior in high school. From there, I earned my Bachelors of Science in Music Media Production at Ball State University which thrust me into the worlds of Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Acoustical Science, Songwriting, Live Sound, Synthesis, Sampling, Acoustic and Electronic Composition, as well as Percussion, Piano, and Vocal performance all at once. I also have worked again in Broadcast and Live Recording with both a popular music performance radio show called "The Scene" for Indiana Public Radio as well as Symphonic concerts and personal Recitals in Sursa Performance Hall at Ball State.
With all of this in mind, my customers are assured to get the best possible solutions for their recording studio, live sound rig, concert hall, broadcast studio, or practice studio. Ultimately, my customers and I share the dream of making music. I want to be your problem solver and one-stop solution to make those dreams come true.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

History and the historical documentary, be it music, national, wars, etc. I also enjoy watching TEDTalks just for opportunity to grown and learn. Netflix, Hulu, and such are my primary means of TV entertainment because of the variety. I also enjoy Basketball Stats and play in the Pacers D-League Team's Drumline, The Mad Drummers for the Mad Ants.
Both of my older brothers. I am indebted to both of them for understanding and learning to love music from the beginning
Video Games. Most days, I choose not to play much. But when I can, I can delve deep into strategy games from Steam, especially history based ones (Age of Empires series, Total War series) as well as open world games (Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, WoW).

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!
