What I’m working on now

Last updated: July 16, 2018.

My family is my priority: my wife and my son, and our two dogs.

I spend most days working at Bose, as an Applied Research Engineer for the Automotive Systems Division. I work on projects I can’t write about here, except to say that I get to spend my days listening to music with the goal of making it sound better.

I’m about to release new music with my band, Sleep Studies; our second album is mastered and waiting for a name. I also try to create at least two new drum patterns each week, to both force me to practice and to learn more about the nuances of Ableton Live.

I’m trying to read one book each month. It’s not an overly ambitious goal, but reading is a priority, and I need to restart the habit. I’m also journaling two or three times a week.

I try to spend a few minutes each day honing my coding skills. A few years ago I shipped a very basic weather app, Snow Day, and I’m in the process of adding a python-based server component to it. I recently released a fitness app for the Apple Watch, Stand Up. I’m also trying to learn more about Core Audio, with the goal of releasing an AudioUnit plugin this year.

I previously published Today in Shark News, a link blog of, well, shark news, but I’m currently taking a break from that project.
