During the day, I work at a local startup as a hardware intern during summers, and work on my E.E. degree during the other three seasons.
At night, I build electric race cars, develop custom electronics, and build robots to do my bidding. I primarily work at an intersection of music and electronics, resulting in such projects as a MIDI-operated reed organ and robotic alto saxophone, but also do all manner of other electronics projects. See my GitHub for most of my public work.
