I’ve been reading a book in my spare time called How to Win Friends & Influence People, by Dale Carnegie, and have been shocked by how applicable the book’s lessons are to everyday life. Carnegie’s thoughts and experiences are more than just useful for people running companies or trading stocks; they are important for us, […]

In all of the industries we sound professionals work in, we are constantly looking to the future. We are looking forward at deadlines, new projects, vacations, conventions, invoices, and bills.

The impetus for this decision was a conversation I had with a co-worker, the late sound designer Stillwind Borenstein, about thirteen years ago. He explained an interest that, since both sound and […]
