Major: Audio Engineering

Born in Maine, I got my introduction to music frequently singing Christian music with my mother in the car and banging out songs I made up on her piano.  In my early twenties, I picked up guitar and taught myself to play.  From there I also schooled myself in piano, drums, accordian, and bass basics.  I also formed a small band that performed at local Christian coffee houses called Warriors Ink.  I was ulitmately noticed in church during a solo performance by Doug Elder from the Wrecking in my mid-twenties. Doug encouraged me to record what I was doing and got me interested in digital recording when he showed me his small digital recorder.  Ultimately, I received hands on training in audio engineering through Recording Workshop in Ohio in 2008 and Recording Connection in California.  Recording Connection actually paired me with a mentor at The Studio in Portland, Maine where I learned as an audio apprentice in 2011.  Currently, I run a studio band called Plourdias Black where I write, record, mix, and produce our songs.  I also am in a performing Christian progressive rock band called Chaotic Rescue.
