SHORT BIO

I help juggle the various technical needs of Marketplace shows, including recording, mixing, troubleshooting finicky studio computers and even writing original music once in a while.

What was your first job?

Grounds crew / janitorial work at my high school, age 14.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Honestly, I've probably been the equivalent of a sound guy across all incarnations of my existence, which I don't anticipate changing. So ... sound guy ... IN SPACE???

What’s your most memorable Marketplace moment?

Having all three Hanson brothers in our New York studios. They were incredibly nice dudes.

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

Whichever cup of tea I happen to be drinking at any given moment.
