I’m a technologist, a musician, an avid music fan and a serial entrepreneur.
I grew up alongside the rapid rise of technology and the Internet in the 80s and 90s. I like to tell people I was a computer nerd before it was cool. I cut my teeth with community building by running a rather popular BBSe in my area as a teenager. I started working at a mom+pop computer shop when I was 17 and moved on to systems and network administration for financial institutions at 19 and a global data satellite company in the early aughts. In 2002 I started an independent I.T. consultancy, closing in 2022 to focus full time on SubJam.
Music has always been a cornerstone of my identity. I’ve written and collaborated on projects, have performed in front of crowds, spent time recording in local studios and have had some of my favorite memories involving myself with music and the creative process with others.
In 2011 I started a volunteer project to support my local music community after our only supporting independent radio station was purchased by a large corporation and switched formats without warning to employees or listeners. It was by working in this project I discovered that great talent is *everywhere*, not just in the mainstream.
It’s my mission to use my passions of music, technology and community to help change the world.
