I am currently an Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts program in the Music major (ICAM) at the University of San Diego, California. The intention of this site is to give the reader a glimpse into the work, academically or volunteer based, during my time at UCSD. The target audience are peers, admissions application reviewers (wink wink), and prospective employers. It is to be received as an ongoing work in progress.
Secretly, I have always been a music technologist whose love of computers and music started at an early age. I received my first computer, an Amiga 1000, at the age of 5, I began playing percussion in the sixth grade. It was in 1998 that the marriage of these two became my life’s focus. I received my first modern PC and a crash course in audio applications from a good friend. From then on I spent most of my free time tinkering with audio. Up until arriving at UCSD I worked as a system administrator and web developer for the entertainment industry, as you can see in my resume. Eventually I decided it was time to try something new and my goal became the ICAM Music program at UCSD. This site is a documentation of my progress through the program. In my fourth year at UCSD I am nearing my goal of graduating and exploring the future of both music and computers.
