The one profession that I would like to try other than my ownwould be…a shoe salesman, because the job requires no liftingof heavy equipment, no expensive technical equipment inventory and noproblems to take home — or an orchestra/opera conductor!

The one piece of advice that I would give to students enteringthis business would be…to be patient. No one starts at thetop. Look for a unique approach or an unusual entry, and one in a“smaller market.”

The last great movie I saw was…Chicago.

The moment I knew I was in the right profession waswhen…Recording musical events and radio plays has always beenthe “right fit” for me.

Currently in my CD changer: Anna Russell's first CD,featuring her unique interpretations of Gilbert and Sullivan operettasand Wagner's “Ring.”

When I'm not at work, you can find me…at the theater ora concert, at dinner with friends or a Sapphire Group meeting —or at an AES meeting or convention.
