DOM Member Profile - Tim Johnson
Tim Johnson has been a DOM member for 3-1/2 years, and his contributions to the DOM community are numerous. We asked Tim about his time at DOM, and what a membership has meant to him.

"I joined DOM to have access to all of the equipment and studios here, and to learn how to produce music videos. My membership at DOM is priceless. As a non-commercial artist, I would be financially unable to afford the equipment that DOM provides. So, DOM is directly responsible for my contribution to and my growth in this society. The projects that I've produced, thanks to DOM, are many songs and videos, including Blackout Love, Hypocritical, and Terence Mckenna. I've also produced videos for my friends, April Bond and Mike DeCesare; a full-length concert for Sworn Us Under; and a documentary about my friend called Am I an Artist, featuring BGOLD. But my most current project that I'm so excited about is me."
