My favorite sound reinforcement experience was…I enjoy it most when I resolve a particularly difficult design or optimization by pushing the envelope in some way and expanding the possibilities.
The last great book I read was…Larry Niven’s Ringworld’s Children.
Currently in my CD changer:
Talking Timbuktu by Ry Cooder and Ali Farka Toure.
When I’m not in the office, you can find me…in my other office at Solstice Company.
