About Me

I have 40 years of experience in audio as A1 for pre, live, post-production audio, sound design, mixing for broadcast TV, video, and music productions. Please visit www.rlfx.com (Aural Effects) for some of my clients/credentials.

I currently work as audio system tech/set-up and trainer, and event consultant/manager through my company, RLFX/Crackerjack Productions.
I recently installed installed, programmed, and trained personnel on Yamaha TF5 Digital mixer at Avon Park Holiness Camp. I also tuned sound system and integrated new system for live video streaming and CD recording.

In 2013, I returned to self-employment in FL, after 9 years as Audio Designer for CNN/Turner Broadcasting (Wash, DC Bureau), 4 years as A1 with KPRC-TV Houston (NBC), and 5 years as Lead Sound Tech for NASA JSC TV/film division.
Throughout the 70s, 80, and 90s, I was either a staff and independent recording engineer, as well as a concert and stage show mixer.
I have also been an independent designer, and installer of systems for broadcast, recording, PA, and audio visual customers.
