What I want, more than anything, is for you
to trust me. For that to happen, we've got to have a relationship.
I've got plenty of experience - recording, technical and mastering - so
chances are good that I can make technology tangible for you. You
ask a question, I'll mostly answer it with more questions, or ask you for
a sound file.
The first question is free - yes, I am ultimately
asking for monetary compensation, but in return, you will get details -
in pictures, text or sound - whatever is necessary.
PAYPAL is the easiest and fastest way to
prime the pump, but I also accept all major credit cards - that's not an
automated process and you're welcome to send your CC# via e-mail, but most
people prefer to do that by phone.
