About Me

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I am a programmer, musician, art collector, and reader who lives and works in Silicon Valley. I did my dissertation in 2013 at The University of California at Santa Cruz. I worked briefly as a lecturer at San Jose State University. Now I'm a full time web developer who spends his weekends writing blog posts about the things he loves.


If you're looking for my books about sound synthesis in Java or Processing, you can find them here.

And here is a smattering of my other publications.


If you're looking for my music, you can find it in a few places.

My blog

This site was created with Gatsby using a blog starter called Empress. If you like it, then give it a shot. The Empress blog starter allows you to create a fast, fully featured static blog that you can host on Amazon for almost nothing.

I am a huge advocate for frameworks that simplify the web, such as Gatsby, and I love trying new things.
