I own a sound/light/video company in the Philadelphia area. I read and watch a lot of films/movies, and enjoy a healthy measure of sarcasm and snark. I can engineer a technological solution to just about anything, and I love my job.
I barely sleep, I barely eat, and I have a mental disorder which causes me to believe that I'm a 12-foot-tall polar bear. (seriously, who wouldn't want to live on a glacier and eat whales?)
I am also known to others as:
- The Unsleep
- The Omnicryptic
- The Lord Dr Andy (this is purely ego-flattery, please feel free to ignore it, or mock me soundly)
- Clarence Beeks, of Lindhurst Security
I endeavor every day to unabashedly be a responsible adult who embodies a cultural 'Bad Boy,' yet subversively recasts the 'badness' into a unique character which is all my own.
I recently launched my own line of upper-middle-end cables for microphones, instruments, and other sound gear. I'm a bit of a closet "wire nerd", and actually get excited reading about things like capacitance. I make the greatest guitar cable in the world, and I'm not ashamed to say it!
I'm a practicing Discordian, spreading the good and chaotic word of Eris wherever I go. In my spare time I read quantum physics texts, watch zombie movies, and pet my cat.
I'm also quite adept with sound systems and production. Whether it's in a home-theater, a professional stage, or a club, I can work the system and improve it.
