I've always had a passion for quality sound. Growing up, my sound editor father taught me the importance of good sound and good audio equipment. In my teens I was installing audio systems and frequenting concerts. Today, I'm marketing audio products a company that is as passionate about audio as I am. All along the way i've collected and built a nice collection of quality audio gear that lets me listen the way I want. The point is, I love audio... and pizza.
