Work

See my full Curriculum Vitae.

I've been working in public and academic libraries since 2011. I mainly manage technology labs and focus on digital literacy and educational technology. This means I answer questions and provide training on lots of different technology topics. Lately, I've been working on developing data science educational resources. Here's some of what I've been doing...

Audio

I like to record, edit, mix, and master audio. This has led to some fun projects, including a few recent collaborations with an old friend...

Podcast

The Heat Index is a podcast I started with a meteorologist friend, Melody. We wanted to talk about what it's like working with the weather and working in libraries.

Music

  • Solo music is stuff I've written and recorded alone.
  • Prequels was a punk/rock/other band where I wrote the songs, sang, and played guitar (and sometimes bass).
  • The Young and The Elder is an indie/piano band where I played guitar (and sometimes danced).
  • These Gnarly Beasts are an online band I started with friends from college.
  • I played guitar for The Human Ascension, which was a hip-hop / fusion band in Tallahassee, FL. Check out this video I edited of the last show I had with them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OopdQIpEoX0

Visual

I like to mess around in Adobe Illustrator / Photoshop.

Clicks & Whistles is a collaborative t-shirt shop effort with my wife Laura. She draws animal pictures and I adapt them into digital designs.

I've also made several band flyers, logos, and shirt designs. Here are a couple of them:
