Music has always been a cornerstone in my life. My earliest memories include listening to and playing music. I’ve been in numerous bands, crave the energy from performing in front of crowds and love connecting with people who love music as much as I do.
I’m also a lifelong computer nerd. I.T. has been my professional career since age 17 (1997..oh how time flies!). I’ll talk your head off about GNU/Linux and the open source community, server and network infrastructure, shell scripting, security, privacy rights and everything in between. The words you’re reading right now live on servers I built and racked in SubJam’s colocation facility in Northern California. We’ve made our own ‘cloud’ with SubJam.
Back in 2011 I launched a volunteer promotional website and streaming online radio to help support my local music scene after my city’s only supporting radio station was taken over by a large media corp and changed formats. It was by working with other local artists, fans and venues during this time that I had an epiphany – great talent is everywhere and deserves to be shared.
It’s my mission to mix my passions of music and technology to try to foster stronger music communities. Culture shapes this world more than anything else and I believe SubJam is a powerful force for positive change. ❤️ 🎵
