His acoustic designs are developed from the viewpoint of one who sits in the monitor space, living with the consequences of nearby peripheral equipment and ergonomic issues.

He has been an active member of the Audio Engineering Society since 1968. He holds a Patent for an audio recording technique used in desensitizing domestic animals.
