I am a composer, sound designer, hardware designer and programmer who is enthusiastic about gaming and game mods. I feel like gaming is the future of multimedia entertainment and the storytelling of today. I am especially interested in generative music and interactive music, that further immerses the user in the virtual world. I have built robots that compose music, data-driven algorithmic music, forward thinking electronica track, full symphonic works, multiple chamber works and have played in and composed for award-winning electro acoustic ensembles.

I don't update my profile here very often, but I recently worked on a small thing that I figured those who listen to my music might like. Its just a very short animated intro and chiptunes track I made for a Usergroup I run in my city.

Be wary of those that claim you just 'communicate' your way into a serious tech role. They will expect you to know how to do the work too.

Dec 4 2016

Sounding cool at parties won't build you your next app. Practice. Most tech skills are lifelong skills to refine. Hard work, but rewarding.

Dec 4 2016

Mastery in technology is comparable to any craft, like music. Learning to communicate about it is valuable, but not replacement for practice
