Mike Jaworske

I have been playing drums, guitar, and bass my whole life and recording for 20 years. I have been a part of the Northeast Ohio music scene for 20 years now, and absolutely love it. This area is an untapped resource of incredible musicians and artists. I am always amazed by the creative people I meet and have been blessed to work with them. When it comes to paying the bills, I’m a computer engineer. For fun, I am a do-it-yourselfer and a music nut by nature. I also have the ability to service, repair, or modify music gear for optimal performance.

In 2008 I met my beautiful wife and married her by April of 2010. By February of 2012 we were completing the construction of our new professional, in-home studio. Now we are celebrating the birth of our identical twin boys, born May, 15 2012.


Mary Cay Jaworske
Studio Manager

By day, Mother of Twins, by night… Mother of Twins. I work 24 hour shifts and in nearly 8 months have not called off once. Even while battling a nasty cold. I don’t get paid overtime and I don’t get sick days. But, I wouldn’t trade my job for the world! I am the wife of Mr. Mike Jaworske himself, Owner/Producer of dfs. He is the love of my life, the provider of this home and the most loving, affectionate, intelligent, talented, father I could ever wish to have for our beautiful twin boys. Prior to becoming a “Domestic Engineer”, I was quite possibly the best sales rep Revol Wireless had ever seen. I had a long history as a Mortgage Banker, some experience in car sales, and even spent some time as a Bartender. In my spare time, as if there is any of that, I dabble a little with paint. Some consider me an “Artist.” I feel it is pompous to call my self an “Artist.” Although my work IS quite amazing. I love working with color and have a deep affection with how color effects our mood. If you book the studio, you may notice a more relaxed atmosphere in the control room and a more energetic/creative vibe in the sound proof live room. If you are interested in booking the studio or would like us to be a part of your event please call me, as I am also the Studio Manager for defunk studios.
