About KAM

Starting at in the BCIT Broadcast course in 1976 I knew I had found what I’d needed in sound production. By 1978 I was full time at the new station in town CKVU TV doing every job I could get my hands on and spent the next 4 years listening and learning with great enthusiasm. I left CKVU when CBC called in 1980.

In 1995 after 15 years at CBC, they presented the staff with an attractive retirement package to see if anyone would voluntarily leave I could see the writing on the wall about the direction of the CBC and TV in general were going to follow for the next decade or so and choose to take the package and move on to new opportunities. KAM digital has been operating since that time.

In the beginning I concentrated solely on film and television sound projects but was soon approached about projects in the quickly growing digital sound and Internet publishing industries. As I had been using home computers since the early 80’s I charged enthusiastically into this unknown marketplace while still following my first love, TV and Film sound.

In 2003 after some 30 years in the sound for TV industry we parted permanently and KAM digital became my sole source of income. I could not be happier about my chosen field and continue to learn and grow with the ever changing highly technological world of the Internet and supporting industries.

From 2004 to 2011 I recorded or produced some 200 podcasts. In 2010 was the technical director for a series of 55 podcasts for VANOC, The Globe and Mail and UBC for the 2010 Olympics called “Intellectual Muscle“.

Now in 2012 with 30 years in professional sound for TV and Film, 16 years of website projects including hand coded, Joomla and WordPress and 9 years of Podcasting and music production behind me I feel I can take what I know and pass it on to those that have that burning interest to find out more.
