About Kurt


Bio

I am a jack of all trades and a master of some. I lived in Japan for one year while teaching English classes and falling in love with Japan's culture and people. After I returned I worked for 2 years doing Japanese translations and customer service part time to help with college, however I quit working during my senior year so I could focus on completing my B.Sc. Biotechnology and start interning at a contract research organization. I used my chemistry and math knowledge every day on the...

I am a jack of all trades and a master of some. I lived in Japan for one year while teaching English classes and falling in love with Japan's culture and people. After I returned I worked for 2 years doing Japanese translations and customer service part time to help with college, however I quit working during my senior year so I could focus on completing my B.Sc. Biotechnology and start interning at a contract research organization. I used my chemistry and math knowledge every day on the job.

The internship landed me a job as a scientist doing pharmaceutical research, but I have since started teaching myself computer programming and am in the process of to switching careers. Don't get me wrong, I love science, however the opportunity to work remotely from my laptop is simply too appealing to pass up.

And I have studied music theory since I was a child and have taken private music lessons for decades. I have tutored for both acoustic and electric guitar in all styles. I believe that with enough practice anyone can gain the insight to become a master.

I can help you read sheet music and guitar tablature and delve into music theory if you'd like a more thorough musical background, or help you finally write (and record!) that album you've always wanted to make. I have written and recorded over 100 songs across multiple instruments.

My musical creativity was first nurtured when I began piano lessons at 5. Things escalated quickly after I combined my music theory with different instruments. I started playing the trumpet at 12 and went on to play with the Utah Youth Symphony. I began teaching myself guitar at 13 and have had several bands where I was writing the majority of the music.

I have made several applications in JavaScript. I can show you the ropes from the ground up, or we can talk about more advanced topics like design patterns and what is going on under the hood.
