I started out doing theatre as a student and liked it so much I pursued it professionally. I did scenic and lighting design in the 70’s and 80’s before settling into sound and music work. I worked in the sound department at DuArt Film and Video from 1999 to 2012, becoming head of audio production around 2004, there I did mixing and sound design for many independent films there, and was nominated for an Emmy for best sound in a nature doc for “An Original Duckumentary” – didn’t win for sound, but it won best nature doc. I was also the audio post supervisor there for Pokemon English language dubs from 2007 – 2011. I now do film mixing and music at my home studio, Worthy Sound Works.
Around 2012 I moved to Catskill with my wife, Alison Davy. In 2015 I needed a break from mix rooms for awhile, so I began hosting weekly ukulele jams where I encourage amateurs to sing and play songs on ukulele to develop skills and to explore music. It’s kind of like therapy, kind of a club. Anyone can join, nobody ever gets kicked out. We play out at public events regularly with varied ensembles. Come check us out at the Catskill Community Center most Saturdays from 1:30-3:00. I’ll be hosting the Deep Wednesdays Ukulele Cabaret at HiLo on Main Street, the next one is May 22, come on over and listen, play or both!
