479 – Creating something from nothing with David Frangioni

If I listed one of David’s careers, it would be impressive. But David isn’t a one-career type of guy. He’s a Renaissance man who’s reinvented himself over the years. David started as a drummer then evolved into a pioneer of MIDI technology, the founder of an award-winning A/V firm Audio One. Frangioni has also authored two books, and been the recipient of dozens of gold and platinum albums as technologist, engineer, and/or producer for hundreds of artists including the Stones, Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Elton John, Sting, Carl Palmer, Journey, Styx, KISS, Phil Collins, Shakira, Ozzy Osbourne, and more.

David embodies the spirit of someone who can create something from nothing, repeatedly. The good news? So can you.
