Recording Studio at EMPAC

Apart from my full-time position as Head of Operations for Sleepy Circuits, I also run a small recording studio at my home in the Berkshires. Situated on 22 acres, Studio at Camp Cook is an expansive retreat for creative artists. We provide recording, mixing and video production services. Recent highlights include the release of Hackable Animals debut single Which Way Do We Go and two recent EPs for the BenAnna Band.

In 2020 I worked as an Audio Visual Associate at Shen Milsom & Wilke LLC, where I partnered with clients, architects and contractors to design world-class Audio Visual systems for a wide variety of new and renovated structures.

From May 2017 until December 2019 I served as the Lead Audio/Visual Engineer at TriNet, where I provided service and support for over 3,000 colleagues, managed over 300 devices across 19 U.S. states, and directed all large-scale audio/visual projects. I had the pleasure of co-designing, building and managing a state-of-the art, 4K Green Screen Studio at TriNet headquarters in Dublin, CA.

Before TriNet, I had the honor of freelancing as an audio/visual engineer for some of the world’s greatest artist,  like master audio engineer Todd Vos, critically acclaimed choreographer Elain Summers and modern music pioneer Pauline Oliveros.  Below are a number of roles I have served on for a variety of projects:
