I have a passion for sharing sound knowledge. Every few weeks I teach a sound class to union members of IATSE 479. Additionally I teach sound on my Youtube channel - Sound Speeds (http://www.youtube.com/SoundSpeeds
). I've been a guest speaker at high schools, colleges, online seminars and online festivals and enjoy inspiring and educating people whenever I have the opportunity. I'm very active in the GA sound community and many people consider me an influencer for what's new in the sound world.
I was once a member of the professional Photographers of America which helps me now as a boom operator and since 2015 have been an associate member of the Cinema Audio Society. Recent projects I've worked on include The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Avengers: Infinity War, Cobra Kai and American Soul. I've worked with numerous manufacturers product testing and innovating new products and enjoy seeing my input help make a product successful. I enjoy teaching about sound on my YouTube channel Sound Speeds.
Favorite DPA Microphones
Hands down, I love DPA's realistic capturing of sound more than any other manufacturer on the market. The d:dictate™ 4017B is my favorite microphone by far. It has excellent reach, very impressive off axis attenuation, is crystal clear clarity and is unaffected by coloration. I also love the d:screet™ SC4098. It pulls out dialogue at distances no other low profile plant mic can compete with, sound rich and full and rejects out stubborn background sounds like a full sized mic. You can't beat the d:screet™ 6060 series lavs. Rugged, open sounding and capable of capturing higher fidelity audio than any other lav on the market despite being smaller than practically every other lav.
