Paul Sandweiss
After graduating with an associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, Paul got his start in the business in 1976 at Wally Heider Recoding. He became chief engineer of mobile operations, traveling too much, and having the opportunity to work with many talented live engineers, studio engineers, and producers on various live projects, from The Oscars to The Last Waltz. After leaving Wally Heider's in 1980, Paul became a freelance engineer and still mixes many live-for-broadcast specials, series, and award shows including The Oscars, The American Music Awards, The BET Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, The Emmy Awards, Grammy Nominations Concert Live, The MTV Awards, BET's Sunday Best, and The Superbowl Halftime Special. When time permits he enjoys working on concert specials from Celine Dion to Lil Wayne and comedy specials from Kathy Griffin to Richard Pryor.
After opening Sound Design Corporation in 1996 Paul continues to mix some live shows and work in the studio posting non-live tapings. His main focus is on running the day-to-day operations of Sound Design, and taking care of many creative clients who have made Sound Design the place to be for any sound from pre-production through post production. Paul also worked with David Crivelli designing the broadcast audio systems used daily on The Conan O'Brien Show for TBS. When things are in the groove Paul likes to take time and work on keeping his golf handicap in the single-digit area where it belongs, and after a hard day on the course relaxing with a nice glass or two of red.
