i'm a 35-year-old freelance sound engineer trying to keep a balance
between well-paid jobs (which are often quite dull) and interesting
projects (which are usually under-paid).

my definition of success is "not having to take on really shitty
projects" - which means i've had a successful year so far. still a long
way to go before i buy my porsche, though :)
