    Default I met Maya

    I had the distinct honor of traveling to Chicago the past few days and visit some people and places i havent been for a while. One of the places i visited is a place for voice over coaching.
    Anyway, to my great pleasure, i got to meet Maya, otherwise known around here as Lead Synth.
    And it was a great pleasure. She even wore her VH necklace (hey KT) just for me!
    First of all, maya is one smart woman..she really knows her stuff as an audio engineer. We sat for a while together asi watched her master the Pro Tools program and do some great mixing/editing.
    I just wanted to pass along a hello from her to anyone who knows her or spoke to her here(JMJ)
    I can say she is a stand-up person, very smart, absolutely drop-dead beautiful and a class act.
    I'll be going out some more and talking to her at other times, if anyone has a message or anything you'd want me to pass on.

    It's just great to meet some of the people on here you are friends or acquaintences with..
    I almost got to get together with RF8 as well, but time and stuff got in the way..but maybe next time! My loss, but until; next time...

    Anyone else live out that way?

    Ask her if she has gotten over wanting me so badly yet. She wanted the seenschlong soooooo bad for so long. I almost felt bad for her....poor kid.

    Oh, and ask her if she still takes it in the back door as long as people are willing to enter from the front.

    I have also had the great opportunity to meet Maya a few years ago for the Sam and Dave tour! We got to take in two shows together, one at great woods in Mansfield and the other at the Meadows I think the place was called in Chicago.

    Maya is definately a sweetie, and very cool to hang out with! Anyway, Maya if you do read this thread, drop a line and say hello sometime!

    She is definitely a cool gal. I got some info from her a while back for a career change, and it is something that I am just starting to follow up on. Needless to say, her info has made it easier to pursue my dream.
