I am a guitar playing father of one in Austin TX who makes a living in academia and has a passion for music making technology. Educated in experimental social science, I spent years tweaking my audio system while wondering why our understanding of people’s response to music was so limited. I love to listen and to play, but I also want to know what makes music and its reproduction important to people.
