Q: What’s your current role and what does it involve?
A: I’m a freelance audio engineer and mixer, mainly working as an A1 on college sports for ESPN, though I’ve worked for many of the networks as well as other clients over my career. The majority of what I do is football, basketball, baseball and studio productions. I’ve also done the occasional high-profile non-sports event, including important political broadcasts. For instance, one highlight was my role as Head of Broadcast Audio for the 2013 George W. Bush Presidential Center Dedication Ceremony; with every living US President in attendance, it was a memorable event. I also do some work as location production sound mixing.

The vast majority of football coverage the world over is shot in 16:9 widescreen ‘landscape’ mode.
