I've been mixing FOH audio for live shows for over 20 years. During that time, I've been lucky to tour with some amazing people (including a bunch of Grammy-winning and -nominated artists) and mix some of the most iconic venues in the world (Madison Square Garden, Red Rocks, Sydney Opera House, Main Stage Coachella, etc.).

I learned everything on the job, which was tough. So, I developed the resource I really needed when I started out — it's called The Production Academy and has helped thousands of people around the world improve their skills.
