I started out as a music major in college. I had always been interested in recording from helping out with such things and eventually found that was what I wanted to do. I soon found myself leaving college to move to California and was fortunate enough to be hired at Bill Schnee's Studio in North Hollywood. It was there I learned from some of the best people in L.A. and began my career. After working in pop music, TV, and film for fourteen years I made the move to Nashville in 1994.
