About

I am director of music production and recording studies at the University of Stavanger in Norway. As member of the AES Education committee, I have been involved with AES education and student activities for years. I judged the very first student recording awards at the Amsterdam AES convention in 1998 and judged several more since. As a student, I laid the foundation for the University of Miami's student section and recently helped to reactivate the Norwegian section of the AES where I'm a board member and section treasurer.

My professional recording career began in 1983 recording music for the Norwegian Broadcasting Company (NRK) in Bergen. From 1984 thru 1995, I was senior audio engineer/lecturer at the Syracuse University School of Music and an active independent recording engineer and musician in Central New York. I also authored and published two editions of New Ears: The Audio Career & Education Handbook.

I have recorded thousands of concerts and other music performances in the United States and

Norway for broadcast and commercial distribution and has designed and installed a variety of audio facilities.

I have been a senior Fulbright research fellow in Norway, an audio researcher at the Banff Centre's music and sound department and a visiting scholar at the University of Michigan's School of Music.

In addition to the AES, I am a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and the Society of Professional Audio Recording Services, and a board member for the Norwegian Institute
for Recorded Sound.
