I spent my early years out of college working as a Graphic Designer for a major production company specializing in corporate event productions based in Annapolis, MD . Then, moved on to my first passion 'pro audio production', working my way up in various professional recording studios throughout Central and South Florida; as an 'audio engineer/ technician. Circumstances and just simply being at the right place at the right time, along with skills learned in the studio lead me onto the road, working for a major recording group globe trotting for a period of close to 10 years as a Monitor Engineer/ Stage Manager. My next career move was to take a strategic partnership position with an upstart and highly upscale recording studio design firm and production company based on the very exclusive island nation of Anguilla, B.W.I. where we partnered with an Exclusive Collection of Fully-Serviced Luxury Estates, catering to industry moguls looking for a very secluded recording experience away from the main land. This was a very exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience for me as a professional. Building on my experience, and wanting to start a family: I then moved on to teaching 'Pro Audio Recording, MIDI Music Language, and Audio for Post' at a world renowned University in Central Florida that specializes in Media and Music Arts Degrees. Here I specialized in hands on lab instruction; very rewarding to work with the students and see them progress. As of today, I have shifted gears a bit. Building on an idea and possibly one might say a 'dream or mission' of a few collective professionals that came together ten years ago, in the hopes of creating a special program to reach out to children giving them positive, supervised direction in alternative career choice opportunities. We started Project Stingray Global, a collective initiative of industry professionals, from around the world, donating their time and collective experiences in such areas as Classical Music Training, Drum Clinics, Technical Media Arts Training, Classic Art, Athletics such as Tennis Camps, Soccer Training, and yes; even Skateboard Lessons with the focus on Safety and Celebrating Individuality while building Self-Confidence. Providing the children with any and all supplies, tools and facilities at absolutely no cost them or their families.
