Brian Frost photoI am a Live Audio Engineer with 16 years real-world experience in a variety of environments.  Including, but not limited to: Corporate / Private, Broadcast, Rock ‘n Roll, and Theater.  I have mixed hundreds of shows as a FOH Engineer, but am also very capable as an A2, Monitor Engineer, Comms tech, and RF Coordinator.  I strive for excellence in both audio and customer service, because let’s face it, you can’t have one without the other in this industry and still be successful.  I have pinned mic’s on more fortune 500 CEO’s, political leaders, and foreign dignitaries than I can count.  I always strive  to keep things light-hearted and easy going with clientele to both ease tension and convey confidence.  In addition, I make it a point to work well with others, regardless of their skill level.

When in San Francisco, I enjoy working as a Journeyman member with IATSE Local 16.  Some noteworthy accomplishments and milestones with Local 16 include:

When outside San Francisco, FSOUND is the umbrella under which I operate to service my freelance clients.  I carry a $1Mil liability policy and am registered & current with the State of California.
