Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

I'm in Baltimore, MD, USA, between New York City and Washington, D. C. I've been writing articles about audio and video technology for over 30 years. I record, mix and master audio. I shoot and edit video. The audio and video usually make it to my reviews, because just writing about audio or video is extremely limiting.
I tried to convince the trade magazines I was writing for to let me post links, they weren't interested, so I started my own review blog. B&H saw it and asked me to become a B&H Affiliate. That means, if you click on a link on my blog, go to B&H, and buy something within 50 hours, I get a small commission. Not as much as the magazines paid me for my articles, but enough to buy a few bags of groceries.
I also hire out as a consultant. Most recently, I created an acoustic design for raw space in the Exelon building in Baltimore to make a video shooting studio. Because B&H carried the panels I needed, we put the sale through them. The client was very happy. I ran into an Exelon employee on a flight earlier this year. I mentioned the project and he said, "That's a cool room! I've been in there!" I also consult on audio gear purchases.
If I have a gift, it's being able to communicate with people and I'm wicked good on Pro Tools. I'm also using Apple Logic Pro to compose new music. Hopefully this WordPress platform will let me advance these pursuits and more. Yay!
