I believe there is something very special about music. We try so hard to communicate our feelings and thoughts with the people we care about on a day-to-day basis, but often we are unable to because of the limitations of language. However, when language is paired with music, our deepest thoughts and feelings can easily be conveyed when it matters most! This fact is truly something special.
After graduating high school in 2003, I decided to pursue my budding passion for music through drumming, playing guitar, and performing vocally for various groups. It was a very special time in my life, as some of the greatest music I have ever been a part of was created. As some of these groups inevitably ended, I found myself saddened that much of the music that had the potential to change a life, and had indeed changed mine, would be lost in the sands of time. It was at this point I resolved to enter the audio production world to save as many of these songs as I could.
I started to record and produce vocal and instrumental groups, in hopes of saving in digital format, the music that meant so much to its creators. In 2005 I entered the Music Business degree program at the University of Nebraska, Kearney. There I studied a number of topics including arranging, conducting, private vocal study, composition, audio production, music business, and many more. Equipped with a better understanding of music and the music business world, I began my first audio production collaboration with Kent Lutt, which eventually lead to the formation of our own audio production company.
I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2011 with a Bachelors in Music and an emphasis in Music Business. Equipped with my new found knowledge and experience, I have since decided to continue my journey of learning to better capture, engineer, and produce the music that can change a life.
Since graduating from college I have also developed a love for video production and web development work. I’ve been working as Internet Director for Yandas Music & Pro Audio for the past 4 years, and in that span of time I have been able to gain an extensive knowledge of web design/programming disciplines, as well as the capturing of visual digital media. These two new disciplines I have come to love join the other puzzle pieces in forming what I would love to do for the rest of my life: Capture the media with an important message, mold and craft that captured media into the best it can be, and deliver it to the world via the web.
