I am an engineer, actor, sound designer, sailor, cook and gardener.
*some more than others, so your mileage may vary here.
I graduated from Lehigh University with degrees in both Mechanical Engineering and Theatrical Production & Design.
In addition to that formal education, I have also studied music composition, film production, acting (Meisner method), improvisation (longform), web application development, digital marketing, and search engine optimization (SEO).
In 1995, I started my career as an aerospace engineer. Each role demanded more and more software & systems expertise until I eventually evolved fully into software development. I have been working as a software engineer since 1999. I added audio engineering in 2007 and since then have held several roles in on-location audio recording, post-production studio mixing/mastering, original music composition and live performance mixing.
This is the first time I have re-written my bio in the first person. A fascinating thing stood out to me during this process: It is much easier to list your accomplishments in the third person! Upon switch to this first person view, I wanted to cut half of it out because it sounded like an arrogant a-hole speaking, haha. This site is going to be an exercise for me!
