Multitrack Field Recording
I'm currently equipped to record eight channels at once via a portable recording rig. Plans are underway to power the system from battery, with eventual photovoltaic panels, to provide a quality field-recording setup one can use for extended periods of time in the field. At present I am limited to where AC outlets are available. My microphones are cheap but reliable; the system is minimal but capable of a high quality of reproduction.
I have a digital SLR camera and familiarity with Photoshop et al. A few years working in live television has given me a solid basis in lighting and composition; continued study of films by folks like Andrei Tarkovsky, Orson Welles, and Terry Gilliam has engendered some sort of style. Taking nature photographs is one of my hobbies.
Website Design / Maintenance / Hosting
Websites I provide design, maintenance, and/or hosting for are on Linux servers, typically using MySQL and either Drupal or WordPress (based on requirements and client preferences.) This site itself is a fairly good example of what I can create with Drupal; xwordcontest.com was recently crafted with WordPress.
Please contact me if you'd like help with stuff like this.
