I am an independent audio professional based in the Chicago area. My areas of expertise and passion include all aspects of live sound, as well as sound and A/V system design, installation and maintenance. I also enjoy recording, and got started making home recordings and eventually working in studios before steering towards live sound and sound contracting. After starting in 1990 and having several rewarding careers with various firms and venues around Chicago, I went independent in 1998. (And I am proud to have ongoing fruitful relationships with many of the people I worked with before then.)
Pat McCarthy has been in the industry since 1990.
