What do I do?
Computer and data consulting, including WAN/LAN, WIFI, dial-switched, digital and analog circuits, broadband, data encryption, security, builds, repairs and integration/turk-key products and much more.
Media transfers, including FILM, slides, photos, videotapes(over 10 formats), Reel to reel(3 formats of 1/4-inch), recorded wire, 8-track, micro-cassette, mini-cassette, cassette, MiniDisc, DAT, LP and 78’s.
Video editing, audio editing, custom compilations and one-off projects, including full DVD projects and record albums.
Audio work is focused on live sound production(concerts), which includes mains, monitors and lighting. But I also have done television, radio, theater, on-site recording and capture, multi-track recording, mixing, mastering, CD authoring. I have been involved with a couple of projects from talk of concept through recording, mixdown, mastering, duplication and distribution.
I have to have multiple ways of making money. When concerts go slow, media transfers tend to pick up. When those die down, computer consulting takes off. When computer consulting gets slow, audio production picks up. I can’t put all my eggs in one basket, it’s too volatile these days.
Everything I do, I love to do. I’m very lucky.
I may have some openings in January if you want to help for SacAnime. It’s a lot of lifting and a lot of kids in constumes, but you’ll see a concert from the inside out and back.
And no, you don’t have to hide the yoyos. I’m bringing mine. I expect you to throw when you’re not working, and trust me, most of the time you won’t be working. But, it’s a volunteer position, that’s the only bad part. I work hard so my crew doesn’t have to. Oh, we’ll sweat, but once it’s set, the work slows WAY down until key moments and of course final load out. I’m debating pulling the full PA in this winter just to give it a good run-down. I’m going to excuse myself frequently and work on whatever tricks I’m working on at the time. I would suggest a glowing or LED yoyo for the rave Friday and Saturday night.
