I'm currently a Director of Online Media at QuinStreet, where I manage a portfolio of B2B technology news websites. Previously, I was a Director of Web Marketing & Online Communities at Symantec, where I led web strategy and content publishing for the Enterprise & SMB corporate marketing website and technical user community. See LinkedIn or my resume for more details.
My blog Socket offers personal observations on technology, gadgets, music, and culture. You can also find me on Twitter, where I post short news items that catch my interest.
In my spare time, I enjoy composing and recording music. I haven't had all that much free time lately, but you'll find a selection of tracks from 1991 through 2003 on this site. If you'd like to be notified when I add new music to this site, please subscribe to my occasional newsletter.
My current recording gear includes: Gibson Les Paul Custom (1970) electric guitar, Ovation Ultra acoustic guitar, Ovation Celebrity acoustic-electric guitar, Ibanez electric bass, Alesis QS6.2 synthesizer, Vir2 Instruments VI.ONE virtual instrument, Arturia Analog Factory software synthesizer, Native Instruments Kore Player software synthesizer, Boss BR-900CD digital multitrack recorder, Acid Music Studio software, MXL condenser microphone, Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer, Samson C-com 16 compressor, Edirol UA-4FX USB / MIDI audio interface, and assorted guitar effects.
Some of my guitar player influences include Chet Atkins, Junior Brown, Jim Campilongo, Al Di Meola, Robben Ford, Danny Gatton, Allan Holdsworth, Mark Knopfler, Pat Martino, and Wes Montgomery. I studied under Vinny Valentino for a brief period in the late 1990s.
For digital landscape
photography, I got started in 2000 with a Canon SD100
and am currently using a Canon SX230 HS. For casual mobile
snapshots, I've used everything from a Palm Treo 600
to a Motorola Droid 4.
