Over the arc of his career, Bryon has recorded and edited both live music and spoken word. Upon his arrival to Oregon, Bryon wrote the curriculum for, and taught a semester of, Audio Productions at Southern Oregon University, where he put students through a tedious and, likely unnecessary, exercise in splicing reel-to-reel tape.

Bob Evoniuk

Blame it on a life-long love of language and dialects, particularly those of the American southeast where he’s from, coupled with several decades as a musician and producer fascinated with the workings of recording studios, sound quality and the mechanics of audio recording.

All have served to prepare Bob Evoniuk for his work with BeeAudio. As the father of two successfully grown and launched children, a musician and small business owner, Bob understands the value of teamwork for a fine-tuned enterprise such as BeeAudio. When not engineering or editing for BeeAudio, Bob can be found in the kitchen cooking up something good with his sweetheart or out with his band buddies playing bluegrass music.

Paula Carmicino attended New York University’s Film and Television program, specializing in video and audio editing. Since then she has worked editing audiobooks for New York Audio, Perkins School for the Blind, and now Bee Audio.

Her love of words and sound has also been the catalyst for one of her biggest passions – producing original hip hop music and rapping.
