Mouse has over 25 years of experience in the business of live entertainment. In his teens, he started out with his mom helping her set up weddings, bar mitzvahs and honky tonk gigs. Then it happened, Mouse was bitten by the bug. So a decision was made to start collecting PA gear and sound proof the garage converting it into a classroom. Shortly after, Mouse got on at the local fair grounds as a deck hand on the main stage. This led to touring the fair and festival circuit. In 2000 another decision was made, Mouse and family formed West Works Live a live sound /production company. During this time, Mouse also scored a gig at the local performing arts center, where he still resides. Throughout his career he has worked shows with international touring dance and theatrical companies as well as, some of the biggest names in music.These years of experience combined with a willingness to show others has helped develop a grass roots approach to his teaching techniques which he presents to you.
