How did you get your start?

Hello Kevin and welcome! Could you tell a little about how you got your start in engineering? Also, what advice would you give to the up and coming engineers out there?

I got my start at Lombard Sound in Dublin.The studio manager liked my persistence and apparently the jacket my dad had lent me for the first interview. I guess it brought up certain memories for him.

Lombard was a workhorse studio, it never closed. Jingle sessions from 9am till noon, album projects from 1pm till 11pm and demo projects through the night. You had to be a quick study and somehow I passed the grade. Beacuse we were understaffed I got my first tate of engineering within six months and I was hooked .... truth be told I was hooked from the first day........seeing the Helios console.

From there I moved to Windmill Lane after chief engineer Brian Masterson heard my work on the demo reel of one of Dublin's premier jingle writers. Right place , right time.
