Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Macintosh

I'm a graduate of Berklee College Of Music, Boston (1988) with a degree in Music Production and Engineering. I started using Macs in the recording studio in 1992, and then began consulting for Apple® products in general in 1996.

I have professional experience with just about every Apple product made since 1988, and in all kinds of environments: residential and home-based businesses, advertising and public relations, manufacturing and sales, graphic design, and of course the recording studio.

I think you'd have a tough time finding a tutor in Broward or Palm Beach who is more effective at teaching you how to get the most out of your Apple® products. I like to think I'm helping people realize their dreams a little, and I try to make it easy and even fun!

Music Production

I'm a graduate of Berklee College Of Music, Boston (1988) with a major in Music Production and Engineering and a minor in Performance.

My background in non-linear hard disk-based audio recording goes back over 22 years. My professional experience with Pro Tools® began just before Version 2.0 - honestly longer than anyone I've ever met, including some Digidesign employees! I managed the first recording studio in South Florida that had a Pro Tools® system installed. I've also owned my own home studio since 1996.

In addition I've performed live sound consulting services, for example on Pink Floyd's 1994 tour of the USA.

I'm also the recipient of fourteen ADDY Awards (Advertising Federation) for excellence in Engineering and Production for Radio and Television.
