Monitor/FOH Engineer, Stage Management, Sales and Marketing
Having been involved in the sound industry since the age of 13, it was only a matter of time until James and I met, and it has been a great partnership ever since. In the 1990's, when we met, James was working as an engineer for the Smithsonian’s Folk Life Festival, and I was the on-site tech for the company supplying all the audio gear during. I instantly gave James a lot of respect for the very simple fact that he was the only engineer (out of 13) that came to set-up his own stage and really seem interested in helping us all day. Today I work for Welsh sound in many different capacities, as well as run Sound Krafters, my own company of 12 years. A loyal employee is great, but a loyal employer is usually unheard of; not only am I an employee, I am a close friend of Jamie and his family.
Outside of Welsh Sound, I own and operate a small company called Sound Krafters, which designs and installs structured wiring system in homes and commercial properties. Sound Krafters has granted me several unique opportunities, including the rewiring and installation of a new sound system in RFK Stadium and several other large outdoor and indoor venues on that same property. The mainstay of Sound Krafters is custom home theaters, which includes electronics, wall treatments, window treatments and all other aspects of a great home system.
Hobbies of mine include rebuilding and restorations of water-cooled Volkswagens (not bugs). I currently have two VW show cars and am involved with several different European car clubs and special events.
Thanks for checking out our company.
