I am an IATECH major from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I work mainly with electronic music and video in this program. Here is a short list of playing/music experience: Keyboardist/Guitarsit in Middleworld, recent winner of a Madison Area Music Award for best metal band; Lighting designer, sound designer, composer, performer, videographer, DVD author, publicity manager, and producer of, the event Identified, a multimedia show on 4.16.04 that was in the Memorial Union Theater; Founder of the multimedia group, operate in unison. .

Here's a list of my musical credentials: I have perfect pitch, and can compose complex orchestral scores using the computer program Reason 2.5 by Propellerhead. I have worked with the programs Acid, Sound Forge, Reason, ReBirth, Pro Tools, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash MX, Dreamweaver, and others. I consider all of these to be musical credentials because publicity is 90% of becoming a musician that is noticed. (unfotunately)

My influences include Radiohead, Miles Davis, The Flaming Lips, David Hazeltine, John Faddis, John Coltrane, Gustav Holst, George Gershwin, Coldplay, Minus the Bear, The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, Tool, Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, Red Garland, The Strokes, Bjork, Pink Floyd, among others.
