A professional audio / video engineer for 9 years, I’ve designed and engineered numerous whole-facility audiovisual systems. I’ve worked in the Pentagon configuring videoconferencing systems. I’ve worked in areas as far away as Monterey, Mexico, and Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California. The customers I’ve worked with include Johns Hopkins University, the National Parks Service, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the International Monetary Fund.
I left full-time employment to deepen my knowledge of how business works by pursuing a Master’s degree in Engineering Management at the University of Colorado. When I graduate in May of 2017, I will leave with a much stronger understanding of how business strategy is developed and deployed, as well as having learned a lot about leadership.
My primary job is an installer of AV equipment. We are based out of CT, but I have installed systems in CT, NY, MA, D.C, and other areas. I design audio profiles for the audio devices we use and tune the audio in the systems we install.
On the side I am a trombone performer, as well as a recording engineer.
I have produced 2 full albums, one an acoustic album, the other a variety of choral and ensemble mixes.
I did a research project at UML studying various microphone, microphone placement, and room setup in 114 with a brass quintet.
Worked for GCV for 4 years doing broadcast engineering. Last year I resigned to continue my education in SRT and I am now looking for a new job in the music/audio business. Currently I am music and technology director at Mill City Church in Lowell and I serve as the music worship director too.

Within the commercial AV integration industry there is a rapidly growing vertical that serves the medical market. High tech Integrated operating rooms and hybrid operating rooms can function more efficiently compared to non-integrated rooms. It’s a fun and exciting part of the industry to be working in. I love it.
Having recorded three GRAMMY®-nominated albums, received multiple internationally competitive recording awards from the Audio Engineering Society, and having worked across the United States and Canada, D. James Tagg (Jamie) has helped clients achieve and maintain high quality recordings for over 15 years. Jamie is passionate about presenting spatial realism in recordings. Whether it be the perfect capture and a true-to-period presentation of a live classical performance, or constructing depth and space in a pop mix, the artist is always put in the best possible musical space.
In addition to setting standards in recordings, Jamie also develops new ways of capturing and processing music in both acoustic and signal processing domains. After many hours of subjective listening tests, he has developed and published research on a new stereo mic technique called STAAG (Stereo Technique for Augmented Ambience Gradient). He also has developed/programmed spatial processing tools through digital signal processing (DSP) for his own use, as well as for THAT Corporation’s dBx-TV.
