It was at The Institute of Audio Research, where Gene furthered his studies in electronics and audio recording.
After interning at recording studios in New York City and working as a live sound engineer in nightclubs and casinos around Philadelphia and New Jersey, Gene’s life took a fortuitous turn. In 1986, he started working at the CBS Records/Sony Music manufacturing facility in Pitman, New Jersey where he learned all aspects of the vinyl and compact disc manufacturing processes and found his calling as a mastering engineer.
