Proud to say that I'm now a full time audio engineer...on average 60-75 hours per week.

My day job is as an audio engineer for a video production company, mixing for television and video projects...also recording on location sound, sound design, etc.

On the weekends I've recently landed a gig mixing the worship and services for a local church with several locations as their broadcast mix engineer...tons of fun both Sat. and Sun.

And anytime in-between is spent in my personal studio producing and mixing music for local artists.

Right now I have very little down time...but it's good

I'm currently the staff Audio Engineer at YouTube Space Los Angeles and have a writer/ producer deal with Warner Music to write music for network TV shows. History - The previous 12 years I worked as Audio and Broadcast Engineer for a TV development division of Warner Brothers and 5 years before that I worked for Neve doing repairs, installs & training for their music, film scoring and broadcast products. The previous 7 years was as a bench tech doing component level repairs of Synths, MI and consumer audio devices. The previous 10 years I was a performing musician. Honestly, audio & music is a challenging way to make a living. I've been really blessed and for that I am eternally grateful.

I spent 4 years of my life working as a web developer, user interface engineer for software companies and websites (ecommerce), then I spent 6 years running my own ecommerce biz from home. It was VERY profitable at one time, but I wasn't passionate about it and I subconsciously self-sabotaged the company I owned to force me out of the just-doing-it-for-the-money mindset.

For the past year and a half my day job has been doing session work as a remote vocalist and songwriter for those who need help with their lyrics.

I thought I wanted to go heavy and hard with it, but I had to be honest with myself this past weekend and admit that my allegiance is to my original dream, making my own music. I couldn't figure out why I wasn't chasing more session work like I should.

Today, I decided I am going to venture back into ecommerce and hustle in a new industry; maybe even something in music, but not necessarily so.

The starving artist mode was interesting and humbling, but it is not for me. I love waking up and doing music, but I don't like going without, not just for myself but for my when they need financial help.

Therefore, my day job now - is figuring out my day job. : )

Good thing is I'll still be self-employed. I haven't really done the 9-5 thing since 2004. Though I did get a web dev job back in 2010 that lasted 5-6 months where I got to telecommute some days. I HATED that caged feeling.

On to the next ecommerce hustle. : )

In order for me to move forward with my music goals, I need money to make things happen quicker. It is what it is.

Yes, being your own boss does give you that flexibility to still be able to do your music when you want.

Sounds like a cool gig you guys' got going.
