Story
Tagline
I'm an animator, programmer, musician, inventor and innovator. I have a wide range of interests and a broad lack of abilities, all of which keeps me quite busy. I also have a dry sense of humour. (See the 1st October 2008 blog posting)
Introduction
I'm currently a trouble-shooter for Itron Inc. Previously I was the founder and technology evangelist for Real Time Content (a 'dynamic online video' start-up). I have also been: a programmer, 3D animator, Quartz Composer fan, VJ, hi-tech musician, synthesist, and more... I love inventing things, mis-using things, and being innovative...
Bragging rights
Wrote the undergraduate text-book; Sound Synthesis & Sampling (Focal Press), currently in its third edition.
