The best part about working in the pro audio industry is…being able to see our products onstage in many of the most prestigious venues and at some of the world’s largest events, live and on television. I remember seeing our microphones on TV as I watched American Idol after my first day at Shure.
If I could play any instrument, it would be…an acoustic guitar, because it’s easy to take with you and easy to set up. You can just start playing.
Currently in my iPod Nano: The Beatles and Bollywood songs.
When I’m not in the office, you can find me…riding my bicycle or hiking.
