New work, on stage and settling in...

Ok, So I step off of one speeding train onto another... cool we've settled into work at Bard College at Simon's Rock, or "The Rock". Two weeks ago a director for a musical called "I know I came in here for something" called me and said that the show over the summer was a raging success and it's up for a revival for a couple of weekends. He had approached me in the spring, but with the National Guitar workshop happening, I was booked solid. Anyway, I said yes.

I had to learn the whole show in a week and a half. "Hey, ya need some stress, here's MORE!"

MMMMM boy good!

Got it done, the opening night had my mother in the audience as I sing a song about erectile disfunction. If I can handle that crowd, I'm good for the rest of the show. This weekend of September 25th, 26th and 27th is the final weekend until some time in November where the show is going up again as a fundraiser. Get yer tickets now!

On another note, listen for my voice on College guide .com so far I've done Nashville College, Detroit College, Cleveland and Charolette. With hopefully more to come.

Ok, What happened to SUMMER?!?

I was the Front of House Engineer for the National Guitar Workshop this year down at SUNY Purchase, load in happened on July 12th, and we were loaded out by August 16th...

In between those dates were concerts every night, guest artists like Steve Vai, Pat Metheny, Paul Gilbert, Robbin Ford... sheesh. And then, during this fun and frivolity, I applied for a position at Bard College at Simon's Rock.

Phone interview, two on site interviews... I GOT THE GIG! WOOT!

I'm the new Instructional Technology Specialist for the Art Department. From welders to projectors, computers to the stage. I work for the IT department, yet anything that plugs in, turns on or fires up is now my charge. CNC milling table? yup.

The bonus... A VOICE BOOTH! Nice Wenger booth for me to use when needed.

as a complete aside, the Presonus Audiobox performed perfectly as a travel VO tool. Never dropped the ball for any of my clients while on the road. Sweet.
