Highlighted Projects

Virtual Audio Channel Strip Activity

HTML/CSS/JS, Web Audio API

Note: Does not work in Internet Explorer. Developed to support my teaching of the distance course Digital Sound Design for Multimedia, this interactive "virtual channel strip" allows students to experiment with audio signal flow in real time. Leveraging the power of the Web Audio API, all controls are manipulating real audio in real time.

Music

In addition to my web development work, I maintain a consistent performing and recording schedule as a guitarist/keyboardist in the Indianapolis area. A full time member of the Dane Clark Band, I have also performed with Donovan, Moby Grape, John Mellencamp, and many others.

As adjunct faculty at the Department of Music and Arts Technology at IUPUI, I teach the graduate course Digital Sound Design for Multimedia where students learn the tools and techniques of effective sound design for video, web, and other multimedia applications. Check out my Virtual Audio Channel Strip, developed to aid in the understanding of signal flow in traditional mixing situations.
