The Number One reason I love the audio industry is…The people: Working with the industry’s top artists, engineers, producers and great studios is very rewarding.

If I could have been in the wings at any concert, it would have been…Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden in 1973, where The Song Remains the Same was filmed.

Currently in my iPod: Shiny Toy Guns, Broken Bells, B.O.B. “Nothin’ on You’ (featuring Bruno Mars) and Jason Derulo “Whatcha Say.”

When I’m not in the office, you can find me….on the phone or e-mail, entertaining with my wife at home, paintballing with my son, skiing or getting my iTunes server organized.
