Get the most out of technology

I've been professionally involved with computers for a decade. Whether it's building websites, custom applications or consultation: my years of varied experience and down-to-earth approach will provide what you need.

I also specialize in web services. I can host your website, email, domain name and more.

Some technologies I specialize in include:

Examples

  • The Jack Tobin Show
    http://thejacktobinshow.com/ Terrestrial radio only reaches so many; to really get the word out about Alaskan music, Jack Tobin needed an internet radio station. I built a custom WordPress plugin that allows him to do just that. For good measure I turned his handwriting into a font, and converted his graphics into a special format that means they'll look the same at any size, whether smart phone or IMAX.
  • Elska Photography
    http://elska.com.au/ This build was very fun. The client had hundreds of photos, awards and stories she needed to put into a single, cohesive website that users could easily navigate. I built her custom software so she could upload and manage the photos in each category herself.
  • This was my original website, over 5 years old now.
  • I make posters and graphics, like these for my band The Jephries. I also create graphics for merchandise.
  • I create YouTube channels and graphics, such as this one for my client Dr. Michael Ellenburg. I can also edit and upload videos to your channel.
  • Social media presence is time consuming, but not without great benefits. I can coordinate your social media for maximum impact.

Performance and Audio and Writing oh my!

Solo Performance / MC

Jay's Youtube

The rumors are true: I play solo acoustic bass. Along with my original music, my extensive set of covers ranges from Frank Sinatra to Frank Zappa; from heavy metal to hippy folk to jazz and rock and roll. I have funny songs, sad songs, happy songs, songs that are frankly unsettling and more (special requests are welcome!). I'm also a seasoned host/MC, and available at reasonable rates for bookings of all kinds. Let's talk about your upcoming event!

Live Audio and Engineering / Production

Jay's Sound Cloud

If you need live audio for an event, look no further. I have mixed local, national, and international touring bands and performers. I have access to equipment that will ensure the right atmosphere for your guests and talent.

In the studio, I have well over a decade of experience that includes engineering and producing hip-hop, death metal, folk, jazz, country, straight up rock and roll and everything inbetween.

I've also engineered voice overs, ADR, foley and more for radio, TV and film. I love doing on-site recording.

I have mixed and mastered for a variety of formats, including broadcast, CD, DVD, and mp3/compressed 'internet' formats. I'm available in whatever capacity you need.

I've been doing live audio, lighting and A/V for a decade. I've worked internationally with local and international talent, and in theater with lighting/electric and audio.

Composition and Session Work

My life-long pursuit of music has made me a proficient composer and multi-instrumentationalist. I can sit in as a session player on bass, drums, guitar or keyboards, or compose a radio-ready jingle for your business. Contact me with your creative needs and let's get started!
