About Michael McIntosh
A lifelong musician, I started playing trumpet in the grade school band. Then at 15, I joined the local (only!) Working band on bass and vocals. (semi)professionally at 15. In the late ’70’s, I moved to the Willamette Valley in 1978, playing in various bands. In 1983, the huge move to the big city of LA, living in the “valley” while training and working at a small studio in Hollywood. I also played in a couple of country/rock bands. Moved back to Oregon in late 1986.
Married in 1988, he and his wife moved to Dallas TX when I joined a “The Shoppe” an Americana style touring show band. First son was born in 1991, so moved back to Oregon to be closer to family.
Worked at Brownell Sound from 1992-2006, then at Inner Sound from 2006-2012, as a service tech. During my stint at Inner Sound, I went back to school to further my electronic chops.
In 2012, an agressive spinal surgery, resulted in a forced retirement. After rehabbing for 2 years, I was able to start getting back into supporting the local entertainment needs.
In 2016, after filling in for a friend, I started my affiliation with the world of theater audio. Had been the sound designer, systems engineer, wireless co-ordinator, mixing engineer, and broom boy for many theater productions. I have been the Audio Chair at Pentacle Theater since 2017, on staff at Children’s Educational Theater since 2018, and been involved at most of the local high school theater departments.
