"Entrepreneur and lover of all things audio making the world a better sounding place since 1987. My passion is live audio engineering but I am also fascinated by sound system design, innovation and implementation. I also dabble in electronics, recording, inventing and mechanics. I recently relocated to Boise Idaho to make dreams a reality of building an audio production company with Valiant Productions."
