small hand guns, acoustic guitars, roller skating, videography and, um AUDIO.
My mother bought me my first tape recorder when I was nine. I spent 17 in major market radio, handling the writing, voicing and production of hundreds if not thousands of commercials and promo announcements. I also began producing local bands.<br />
In 1986, I left broadcasting to pursue writing, audio production and talent work. I also began writing articles for magazines and web sites. I am currently a forum leader for the Creative Cow Audio Forum.<br />
As a guitar player, music production has always been a part of my life. In 2000, I began to attract the attention of local singer/songwriters. Helping them create their music has been a very rewarding part of my life. I mix live sound and work as a location audio recorder and mixer for film and video shoots. More information about my location audio work can be found here. <br />
I began shooting and editing video in 2005. I’ve written two books; “Advanced Audio Production Techniques” and “Ty Ford’s Audio Bootcamp Field Guide.” Info on my field guide can be found here. Another book is in the works.<br />
I re-wrote the NAB’s handbook on radio commercial copywriting and have twice updated the microphone chapter in the weighty NAB Engineering Handbook.<br />
Google “Ty Ford”...Audio...Talent and you’ll find more than you want to know. Also try www.tyford.com.<br />
Following a brain stem stroke in 2007, which passed though with no damage, I took a course in Chakra Balancing. In early 2009, I became a certified Chakra Balancer and Subtle Energy Therapist. More about that here. I also have a Facebook page for this practice. <br />
I am never bored. :)
