  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: To always deliver the best of me.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: How much?...My answer is 'depends'!

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: Eclectic, Acoustic Electro

  30. A: Ideas

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?
