Ulysses AccomplishedMonday, July 21st, 2008
Yes, it’s been a long time since my last post. Sorry about that. Life has a way of taking priority over posting random thoughts on the internets. The past few months have been really busy for me both musically and otherwise. Before the Producers Conferences came up I was tied down […]

CD production madnessThursday, March 20th, 2008
The Ulysses project with Goh has been on hold until we can get back into Tiny Telephone, so he decided to print a new run of his first album “Daylight Savings”. Despite being swamped with another major project, I took on the responsibility of trying to deal with the layout for the production run. […]
Goh-ing AnalogFriday, February 1st, 2008
I’ve been up in San Francisco for a couple of days working on the mixdowns of Goh’s album - which is now titled “Ulysses”. We’ve been at Tiny Telephone Studios where this project has taken an interesting twist. We’ve decided to bounce a majority of the tracks back to 24 Track tape […]
Recording Session with Goh NakamuraWednesday, November 21st, 2007
Over the weekend I switched hats to indulge in some serious vintage analog style recording at the Hangar Studios in Sacramento. I’ve been to this facility many times, but this was the first time I’ve had the pleasure of working in the space.
For over a year now, I’ve been helping my friend, […]
Visit with the Propellerhead ProgrammersFriday, November 16th, 2007
Dan Engelbrecht and Peter Sjöllen were in California last week for some programming workshops on the apple campus. I managed to catch up with them a couple of evenings to hang out and enjoy some nice dinners. The three of us went out to one of my local favorites, Gochi in Cupertino where […]

Last weekend, my dear friend Marie and her fiance, Gordon, finally tied the knot. It turned out to be an amazing weekend in Carmel. The weather was beautiful and warm. Gordon’s family came in from Scotland, and Marie’s friends and family travelled from Japan, the northeast, and the midwest.

Well, up until this week, i’ve been busy working on a new project. It’s been about 5 or 6 years since I last created a Reason Tutorial video, so it’s about time that i got a new one out of the can thanks mostly to my friend Josh Mobley.
Up until a month […]
Back to Old SchoolThursday, March 29th, 2007
For the past month or so, I’ve been helping my friend, Goh Nakamura, work on some stuff for his next album. Bear in mind that Goh and I are probably at the opposite ends of the musical spectrum. These days, my world is pretty much software and he’s an old school singer/songwriter troubadour, […]
Biggest Reason Laptop Jam Yet!Saturday, March 10th, 2007
The last Reason Laptop JAM was bigger than expected which turned out to be a mixed blessing. It was great to have a large turnout, and surprising to see so many Reason users in the Silicon Valley area who were up for the challenge. We even had one fellow Reason user come out […]
