David Streit is an audio engineer with a deep passion for music and sound. With over 30 years of experience, he feels lucky to have been in the room for so many magic moments.
He began his audio career working in venues in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. He loved seeing bands play live and became an avid concertgoer. These experiences proved very useful when he moved to Nashville, Tennessee to become a recording engineer.
David earned a bachelor’s degree in recording from Middle Tennessee State University and subsequently accepted an invitation to teach at MTSU. As an assistant engineer at The Aspen Music Festival, he learned about recording classical ensembles. Starting as a staff assistant at Quad Studios, he developed his recording skills assisting and learning from the engineers who came before him as he rose up through the studio system in Nashville.
Now he is happy to call the Pacific Northwest his home and is excited to be a part of the amazing, vibrant music scene in Portland, Oregon.
