One album (or song) that really speaks to me is…Bonnie Raitt's Luck of the Draw. There is a wide range of production that seamlessly works together and, of course, her voice! Every element has its place in the mix and the grooves really pop.

The best concert I've ever attended was…Paul McCartney at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta in the early '90s. Sure, it sounded great, but it had a lot to do with the friends I was with. A perfect evening!

The most memorable pro audio event for me in the past 30 years was…in the early days of in-ear monitoring and I was invited to hang out with the Steve Miller Band for a series of performances to understand what was working and what needed to be improved upon. It was great fun, and it also put me in a very cool place in what is now a huge part of touring.

Currently in my CD changer (or iPod): Semisonic's All About Chemistry, Keith Jarrett's My Song, Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy and The Wallflowers' Bringing Down the Horse.

When I'm not in the office, you can find me…On Zuma Beach [near L.A.] with my son and daughter and our boogie boards!
