Meet the Parsons Audio Team


Roger Talkov

Managing Partner

Roger has been working in audio for over 45 years, hence his gray hair. Roger attended the University of Miami with Bill Porter as his mentor and Berklee College of Music, followed by 11 years at NYC’s Hit Factory. Roger’s credits include Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Keith Richards’ “Talk is Cheap”, Michael Bolton, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi, and many others. Roger also did a brief live sound stint with the Expensive Winos and on the Amnesty International World Tour with Sting. After serving as Director of Partnering Programs at Sonic Solutions, Roger went into business for himself, founding DVDLabs, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a new media leader that created some of the first HD audio discs. In 2011, he joined Parsons Audio. He works tirelessly as a volunteer in his hometown of Swampscott and also holds a 200GT Captain’s License.

Rick Scott

Sales Weasel

With over 25 years of sales experience at Parsons Audio, Rick is the only alum of the “old” Parsons among the new owners. He is a founding member of the musical group Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, serves on the Executive Committee of the Boston AES, and is a man of few words (unless you get him talking about cars, the Red Sox, microbrews or gear!). Rick owns a vintage motorcycle and would be an avid rider if he had any spare time.

William Castro

VP of Sales

A professional sound engineer and acoustician, Castro has more than 20 years of experience working in the music and entertainment industry, including working directly with international record labels and urban and Latin urban music artists. In the past two decades, Castro has provided strategic counsel for music studio owners, artists, and investors looking to finance and launch their own music studios. He has also designed and overseen the building of numerous music studios in Puerto Rico, Florida, and New York City. Willy also records and mixes music intended for international consumer audiences and has vast experience in international pro audio e-commerce.

Cat Reuthe

Office Manager

Cat earned her BS in Communications with an emphasis on Audio in 2008 from the New England School of Communications. Prior to joining the Parsons family in 2011, she worked as an Assistant Engineer at East Coast Recording Company in Warminster, PA. Cat has become an integral part of the Parsons team, wearing many hats and helping keep everyone in line as the Office Manager. When she’s not busy answering audio questions, Cat can be found spending time with her plethora of pets at home, enjoying the great outdoors with her boyfriend, or visiting family in New Hampshire.

Steve Wirtes

Sales Support

Steve studied Audio Engineering at The New England Institute of Art, graduating in 2012. Previously, he’s worked as a Technical Support Representative for Bose, as well as Assistant Engineer at Labrador Studios, where he continues to freelance. Steve joined Parsons in early 2016 assisting with sales and installations. Living close to the city allows him to pursue his niche of recording standup comedy albums. Also an avid podcast enthusiast, Steve’s non-audio spare time is usually spent paddle-boarding and clamming with family down on Cape Cod in beautiful Onset.

Marko Freedman

Partner & VP of whatever is left

Marko is a recording engineer/studio owner (Labrador Studios) and working musician of over 40 years. Marko understands the needs of the home recording enthusiast as well as the discerning professional, always staying current with the latest market conditions and emerging trends. Marko’s friendly and wacky demeanor makes it easy to talk to him and utilize his wealth of experience both as a recording studio owner and as a musician while providing great insight into the workings of the music industry. Marko’s also a board certified Physician Assistant and a professor at Tufts Medical School. So, if you need a prescription for an audio problem or even something more personal, Marko is your man.
