Derek Maki, Hollywood Manager, Skype interview, 2013

Right click and “save as” to download this interview!

Derek Maki is one cool dude! He is an agent, or as he prefers, manager. In Hollywood. I met him in San Marcos in 2013. A month later, he was in San Antonio, so I asked him for some interview time.

We did this on Skype, in my studio, so the levels are a little wonky. That is entirely my fault. His setup was great, but I didn’t set all my levels before we started.

You can see his client list at coolwatersproductions.com, and see his other work at derekmaki.com.

In Memory of a Friend, Erin Cutlip

Right click and “save as” to download this interview!

Erin Cutlip was a friend of mine. Not a “great” friend, or my “best” friend. I only met him once, we lived in different states, and our friendship grew on Facebook.

Erin was 33 when he passed away in June.

This is the recording I made in San Antonio in 2012. I was interviewing him and Chris Ranney at a local little convention.

Thought it might be nice for some to hear his voice again, doing what he loved.

Miss ya, man.
