Working with artists from Bono to Wynton, Kerry J Haps has been an Event Produc(er/tion Specialist) for Wheaton College since 1991. Both at Wheaton and on a freelance basis as Hey, Darlin' Records he has engineered, mixed, mastered, and produced recordings in a variety of genres, live and in the studio, and toured internationally. His sweet spots might be live broadcast mixing and the team building necessary to do so. He is increasingly busy as a consultant and expert witness. At Wheaton's Conservatory of Music, he's taught as an Adjunct Professor in Music Technology. Kerry has been an active AES member since 2002, on the Chicago Section Planning Committee since 2005, and alternated between Chair and Vice Chair in Chicago since 2010. He has also been a voting member of NARAS and prior to serving the AES was President of the Engineering And Recording Society of Chicago (EARS) and editor of their newsletter, the EARDrum, during which time he more than quintupled their membership. With a friendly, "Hey Hey!" he loves bringing the community together as much as he loves audio and music, and would relish the opportunity to further serve the AES Central Region USA/Canada.
