It is my intention to provide audio and music services to clients who want personal attention and honest work for a reasonable price. lostsound is a sole proprietorship with low overhead and a genuine interest in helping people reach their needs in as stress-free a manner as possible. I'm not in this for the money.
I've been an audio professional for going on 30 years. In that time I have worked in a wide variety of audio capacities--from large venue rock concerts to recording studios to indoor/outdoor festivals to live theatre to industrial installation to residential audio...the list goes on. Freelance audio work is what I do to continue learning from new and unique experiences. I also offer training and guidance to those interested in audio and music as a career
For the last 18 years I have been Resident Sound Designer / Head of Audio & Video at Indiana Repertory Theatre. I hold a similar position with Indianapolis Shakespeare Company. I have hundreds of show credits to my name, a few regional awards and--as of 2018--I am an Emmy-winning sound designer for theatre and television. I have built countless sound systems for venues, schools, business, and so on. I have trained dozens of young engineers who have moved on to find their own success.
I am also a self-taught musician and composer. I have been writing and recording music since I was old enough to figure out how to re-purpose my parents home stereo for overdubbing. Recording studio work is yet another art in the audio world that continues to educate and fascinate me. Playing live music has been a large part of my journey as well
My time as a performer has given me valuable insight to the on-stage talent when engineering in live settings. Being familiar with both sides of the sound system helps in breaking through communication barriers and finding the best possible sound in any situation. It also trains my demeanor and keeps my focus in the right place -- quality audio and satisfied (if not impressed) clients--a short list of whom can be found here.
