I'm a computer person who tinkers with music and has a psychology /
linguistics degree. Or, I'm a musical/arts person who works with
computers and has a degree in psychology/linguistics. Or, I'm a
psychology/linguistics graduate who works in technology and tinkers
with music. Or, you get the idea.
I moved to the south bay from Western Australia late December 2011.
It's been an intense experience thus far.
I was brought to the US by a technology company, writing drivers
for and helping design wireless hardware. In my spare time, I work
on open source versions of this software. I was hired based on what
I was doing in the open source world and I still contribute as much
as I can.
I now work for a different technology company. They serve lots of
movies and TV.
I used to be involved with the SCA back in Australia. I got dragged
along one day because I play recorder. Then I ended up joining the
music team. Sure, I like the period dress, cooking, constructions,
fighting and such. I don't like the politics, the back-stabbing,
the rumours and the power-grabs. So I would just turn up, play
music, eat and chat.
