Shaping Experience through Sound
I am passionate about audiovisual design and the symbiotic relationship between art and technology, especially as it benefits the performing arts. With a background as an audio engineer and musician, I appreciate how much sound shapes our experience of life. My job is to design technology systems that expand how we communicate, express art, and interpret our world. Making audio systems as state-of-the-art as possible leads to lasting impact and relevance. This career affords me the opportunity to consult on top performing art projects and complex networked systems while developing relationships with the world’s leading technology manufacturers and performers. Serving as the sound engineer for Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead and having been an audio archivist for Carlos Santana, these roles have provided me with insider knowledge as to how audio systems can better serve the world’s best performers and their audience members.
An Insatiable Appetite for Music
Music has always been the most meaningful aspect of my life and I’m fascinated by the way sound influences our perception of the world. I started playing piano at age four and have since taken up bass, drums, and formal training in jazz and contemporary guitar. Whether it was sound engineering for my high school concerts or touring with my now defunct metal band, I have always explored the scientific and emotional response to sound. Audiovisual design came naturally to me as a lifelong study of how sound behaves, how we can manipulate it to suit specific spaces, and how this design creates an intentional experience for the listener.
