Meet Mark Beasley, President of MPS Studios! He’s a busy guy, but he was nice enough to give us a glimpse into his world outside the studios. He loves working with the Alexa Mini (who doesn’t?), yard work is his second calling, and boy can he run a business.
1. How did you get your start with MPS and how long have you been with the company?
Sometime between 1977 and 1979. I have been at MPS a long time.
2. When you’re not at MPS, where can we find you? i.e. How do you recharge?
At home with my wife and dogs. Yard work.
3. What’s your favorite piece of equipment to work with?
The ARRI Alexa Mini.
4. If we were to hop onto your music playlist, what would we see you were listening to most recently?
Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Neil Young.
