I am knowledgeable in software engineering, math, music theory and audio recording. I have over 19 years industry experience in software development, including aerospace (DOD), TV broadcast automation, financial applications and scientific applications. I can teach C / C++ programming skills.

My musical background is varied and includes piano/organ/synth performance and studio recording. I own and operate Daystar Recording Studios which has had two Grammy nominations. I have worked with many jazz, rock, Latin, Gospel and rap artists over the years and have performed on many projects and with several groups. I studied music privately and at Lamont School of Music in Denver. I can teach music theory and its application to keyboards.

My degree is in Computer Science with Math / Physics minor from the University of Denver and had nearly finished a Master's degree in CS. I have the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree in Music.
