A professional musician since age 13, he worked in radio on and off for 25 years, and was a music critic for 9 years. As a recording engineer, live recordist and music producer in New York, Gottlieb's long and distinguished career includes work with numerous Grammy Award winners and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees in a variety of venues.
Along with his history as a music critic, entertainment writer and disc jockey for a major modern rock station in Manchester, Vermont, Gottlieb owned and operated a mobile DJ service and was a Venue Director for numerous X Games and Winter X Games for ESPN.
