The most exciting thing about working in this industry is: the ongoing digital audio revolution. Even loudspeakers are moving into the digital era, which makes this a very exciting time for Community. The most fulfilling part of my career has been all of the truly great people I've worked with.

The best concert I've ever seen was: in 1997, my band, The Chancellors, played a 30-year reunion concert at the Pla-Mor Ballroom in Lincoln, Neb., where we were inducted into the Nebraska Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Chancellors was a nine-piece brass and show band from the late 1960s that did everything from 1960s Motown to Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears.

The one thing in my office most like my personality is: my “babes mug”: great photos of my wife and daughter.

Currently in my iPOD: “June Bug Rag,” a piano rag I wrote last year.
