I improve life for JENA Labs and Cavalli Audio, and setup and dial in music systems
Listening to live and recorded music, and an occasional exceptional beer or single-malt scotch
live music with Howard Leight earplugs when the sound man gets too buzzed to hear well, fishing for meditative time outdoors, hiking, camping, reading about quantum physics and the Power of Intention, loving everyone and healing pain and illnesses in all who come to me (I know it sounds crazy, but it's true....I'm not The One doing the work, but it's very rewarding)
Grado RS-1i, and easy access to friends' LCD-2s, HE5LE/HE-500/HE6s, and HD600s.
