Since 1960, I have been involved with music, audio and sound equipment. I started in my mother’s kitchen by using her cleaning bowls as a drum kit. Borrowed my father’s acoustic guitar (when he was out) and learned to play it. At school I made my first electric guitar and formed a group with the Headmaster playing drums. The fitness instructor playing rhythm, the drama master playing bass and I played lead guitar. After leaving school, I formed my own group (as most of us did in those days) and was fortunate to meet and play with some of the great artists who are still with us today.
I began to work with live recording and studio recordings and was always able to get a great mix and had the ability to create a musical picture. The positioning and re-positioning of audio equipment in the listening room came naturally to me. I was always ready to help friends set up their audio systems and paint that musical picture.
Oil and Gas
I joined the oil and gas industry in 1970 when I lost the urge to become rich and famous. The oil and gas industry was a tremendous challenge, but at the same time very rewarding and allowed me to keep up with my passion, which is high-end Audio. At the beginning of 2015, the oil and gas industry became very slow which told me the industry wanted a rest and many things began to change in my life.
I live in Vilnius, Lithuania and at the end of 2015; I became friendly with a group of Doctors who are all Tannoy Loudspeaker enthusiasts. My new friends were always trying to get the best sound from their audio systems and when I was able to show my system setup technique I quickly became known as “The Expert”. My friend (who is a department head at the main hospital) advised me to get a name for my cables; get a website to bring my cables into the marketplace. Because my cables sounded so good, every Audiophile needed to know they were available. This was “Doctors orders” and by some twist of fate, I found a well respected Canadian company called Wealthy Affiliate with whom I was able to create my website and so my journey began!
