Recording Engineering

Samples of my recent audio engineering projects can be found in a variety of places, but I will include links to locations where the audio can be easily previewed here.

Lisa Oberlander, clarinet; Yien Wang, piano Times Like These – 2014
Easily previewed on the album’s iTunes preview page or on the Amazon page for the CD. I was responsible for the entirety of the engineering on this project, from recording to mastering and editing.

The Sharpe-Zohn Guitar Duo’s CD of Mozart Trios arranged for two guitars can also easily be previewed on iTunes or directly on the Clear Note Records site. I was the recording engineer on this project, but mastering and editing were done by others.

Writing Samples

Perhaps my greatest writing achievement has been my dissertation — I have posted a complete PDF copy here. For a more direct sample of that research subject, I’ve also posted Chapter 2 of the same document, which summarizes the history and goals of my dissertation project.

When I was a member of the Cognition and Language Lab under Dr. Jamie Reilly at the University of Florida, I participated in a research project that resulted in a publication in PLoS One, Concurrent Word Generation and Motor Performance. I was the primary programmer on the experimental protocol, using Max/MSP to gather time-locked audio and sensor data, as well as writing a major portion of the text of the final article and designing several of the diagrams used in the paper.


My most recent programming experience was with the Pro Tools Auto Bouncer, intended to save time in the CSU Recording Studio when Pro Tools lacked offline bouncing capabilities. It’s since been updated so that it can export a series of audio regions from Pro Tools 11.

I have been maintaining the sound file granulation engine Amber on and off since it was written during my undergraduate studies at the University of Richmond. It is a relatively simple command-line program to do soundfile granulation and is about as complex as my programming skills have gotten.

I am also familiar with Arduino and Raspberry Pi programming, but haven’t completed a project on those platforms as yet.
