Previous Lives

  • Sennheiser VP U.S. West Coast office

  • Audio-Technica VP sales and marketing

The last great movie I saw was…Crash.

With almost 30 years in the audio industry, the most exciting moment was…meeting and talking with Nelson Mandela and working on his 46664 concerts to benefit AIDS awareness. It was a similar feeling at the beginning and end of the Live8 concerts around the world. In both cases, I was responsible for coordination of Sennheiser support and was personally in the wings at the events. What a rush and what great causes.

Currently in my CD changer: I have lately become a major proponent of iPod Lossless. Generally, I'll argue the sonic merits of vinyl, but now that I have this new technology with relatively high fidelity, fully integrated into my car and I'm listening to everything — again. Macy Gray's The Trouble With Being Myself, the Dave Matthews Band's Under the Table and Dreaming and tracks from the Dave Holland big band disc.

When I'm not in the office, you can find me…reinventing, rebounding, remembering, replenishing and recommitting with my wife, Karalyn.
