I never intended to do this (be a studio geek) for a living, it came to me. I've been a guitar player in bands since i was a teenager.
I always messed around at home recording my own tunes to a four track using an Atari 1040st to generate backings. My flatmate was going out with a local radio personality and we did up some parody songs for fun. The radio station heard them and offered me a job in production. That was in '99.
Been a studio geek ever since.

some years ago,
i was involved with a multi-person vehicular manslaughter rap - an event that
i think took place, although i have no memory of it - i needed a way out !!!

after three weeks in an offshore plastic surgery lab, having gone under
the scalpel seven times with an internet certified surgeon, i didn't feel
like i wanted to face the world, or the sun, so i wound up in a studio

a few years later, i changed my name to hank, and the work just started
flowing in..............

be well

- jack
