First and foremost, I love music and writing. Since I composed my first pieces of music and poetry I've been obsessed with creative output. Music and writing are a constant puzzle I want to solve, whether it is a blog piece, recording session artists, short stories, or full length albums. I am the owner and head engineer of Groove: Music Studios. Currently, we offer professional audio mixing and mastering services. I am also the Senior Editor/Staff Writer at The Borfski Press, an independent publishing company that I co-own with my wife, Dagney.
I am currently working full time in music retail at a small business and part time as a professional musician and writer. I love working in a local shop, building customer relationship management skills, and having the opportunity to sell things I love. My expertise include audio production, live sound, music retail, writing/blogging, and publishing. I especially enjoy writing and learning about music gear, specifically vintage pedals. There's something very special and exciting about stomping a pedal's switch or flipping an amp on for the first time.
