One of my favorite pasttimes is to street-perform on accordion. I have found that music catalyzes a simultaneously creative but quantitative thinking that at its core, feels extremely similar to scientific research.
My formal training in music comes from the UC Santa Cruz Electronic Music Program, where I learned electronic music composition, construction, programming, arrangement, and synthesis. Furthermore I am self-taught in guitar, piano, bass, flute, blues harmonica, and accordion. I have taught private lessons for guitar in the past as well.
