20 years?!?! 20 years ago today was my first day as an engineer at Gateway Mastering. I had been working professionally for several years to that point – but this was the major leagues! I started as a production engineer, cutting final masters for Bob Ludwig; shortly after that became his assistant, and shortly after that began mastering records and developing my own clientele. Almost 3 years to the date (August 2001) my mastering room at Gateway opened, where I’ve had the privilege of mastering thousands of amazing records for some of the best known recording artists around the world, as well as so many indie gems. Still feel like that 22 year old kid that started here in 1998, and hope to feel the same way another 20 years down the road!
