Since 1995 he's produced over 400 records, resulting in six GRAMMY nominations for packaging, liner notes, and historical album and has won two AIM awards for design. When not obsessively tracking down defunct record labels and obscure artists he can be found writing his first book Did They Ever Make A Sound?
