So who am I?

My name is Jack McKernan. I’m a freelance audio engineer with 6 years of experience in both live and studio engineering. In all of my roles, I have had the chance to lead, mix, and design sound for a variety of live events. This past summer, I worked as an Audio Visual Technician for Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL. Prior to this role I served as the chief and board operator for the Carmel Catholic High School theater department, as well as the sound coordinator for the Liturgy and Technology Services teams at Carmel. I was also the lead engineer on tour with the Cadence show choir for 3 years.

In the studio, I have had the chance to work with an assortment of local artists and bands. My collection of equipment is professional and quality and can meet the needs of any normal recording session.
