Joe has been passionate about good sound and music for as long as he can remember, cutting lawns at age 12 to purchase his first component stereo system.
He was an intern at Blue Jay Recording Studio in the early 1980's (back in the day of 2" 24-track analog tape) where he was assistant engineer on sessions for artists such as The Joe Perry Project, Fiddle Fever, The Fools, and Pat Metheney, as well as corporate clients such as WGBH Public Television.
Joe served as live sound engineer for The Runes in the 80's mixing in venerable Boston-area clubs of the time including The Rathskeller, The Channel and Bunratty's.
Since the late 1990's he has developed and maintained a project studio offering high quality digital recording to various clients. In addition he has handled live sound engineering and recording for a number of bands.
In 1992 Joe attended and completed the Music Production Workshop at Berklee College of Music, participating in seminars ranging from recording, mixing, and mastering to 5.1 surround production taught by Grammy Award winning engineer, Elliot Scheiner. He is also a member of the Boston-area Pro Tools User Group and subscribes to and reads a number of industry publications each month.
Joe currently serves as house sound engineer at The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN).
In addition to recording, Joe enjoys playing electric and acoustic guitars in various bands.
