For the last 34 years I've been an audio mastering engineer and vinyl record cutter. I have a web site at www.dongrossinger.com .My mastering has led me to work for the Rolling Stones, Kelly Clarkson, Brian Wilson,Maroon 5, lots of EDM and hip hop. I've got a partial list on the site.
I absolutely love the work. These days I mostly work with independent artists or small labels
And, yes, I cut the vinyl for the Grateful Dead's "Without A Net" LP.
I pretty much make my own "circuit," doing corporate-related programs. I am certainly aware of Mr. Lovering and hope to see his work one day. The way Zabrecky has really caught on within the rather small world of this biz, it wouldn't surprise me to see David perform in a trade-related event. His approach, judging by what I've heard, is refreshingly original.
long story short - what I do for a living is fixing what people can't fix themselves. I do property maintenance, all sorts of odd jobs, wire and cable management and so forth. I want to become the ultimate handyman! xoxo) I'm a simple man.
By day I am immersed in a world of technology. I troubleshoot computers, iPhones, and iPads, and software for a living. It is a mechanical/concrete life of device triage and repair and tracking down software and system anomalies.
By night (most nights anyway), I live in a world of poetry and nature and language and jazz.
It is a day divided: betwixt and between brain hemispheres and categories of time (the horizontal existence of chronos, and the vertical existence of kairos).
I'm a retired plumber. Finally got to the point in life when I don't have to live by the sweat of my labor. Now I'm remodeling my own bathroom [new tub, sink, toilet and tiles].
I assemble flat pack furniture. Mostly flat pack furniture from companies like john lewis, asda, furniure123, tesco, homebase and the ikea assembly service. It is not the best of jobs but fitting knock down furniture is something that does make me happy. I used to do flat packs on my own, but after a while I became a furniture assembler at the fantastic furniture assembly company It is a medium sized company, which does mainly Ikea delivery, assemblage, every here and there furnishing dismantling and etc. Pretty much, long story short, that's it.
So cool to do what you love. I always say I do what I do so I can do what I love. I love watching people make glass stuff so interesting to see it take shape! I don't mind my work it certainly does not define me though. I wonder if I could find a job where I can be paid to hang with my dog dance and listen to music read books and write O and walk on the beach. :)
I sell glass! I run an online website that displays my glass artwork and various other artists. I feel pretty fortunate to have a job in an artistic field. Especially making glass pipes and things for people to enjoy whatever they choose ;) What about yourself? And everyone else for that matter?
MJ - Did you ever meet David Lovering out on 'the circuit'?
There are penguins in Pittsburgh?!? Holy Mazzoli!
I knew they had some pirates running around that city, but jeeeez.....
