Recorded and mixed several songs for this band in Greenville Colleges new relocated studios.

Conrad – The Shortest Distance Between Two Points (2006)

My solo project. Performed, recorded, mixed all songs, and wrote them all (except for one Cash cover) as well. Recorded in a number of locations including Greenville College’s studios (old and new locations), the upstairs of a house, and the basement of a house.

She Likes Todd – Outta Line in 99 (1999)

Recorded and mixed this fun and raw punk album at my home studio.

Berry – Unreleased live recordings

Multitrack recording and mixing using my own studio equipment for the band’s live show at Greenville College.

Lexington – Unreleased live recordings

Multitrack recording using my own equipment of the band’s show at Greenville College. This project was mixed by my friend Chase Macri.

Various Senior Recitals for graduating music students (2002-2006)

Music students were required to perform a juried recital before graduating, and have it recorded. These varied stylistically from solo voice and piano accompaniment to full band arrangements for contemporary guitarists. They typically involved many style changes, instrumentation changes, guest musicians, and a full lighting/sound installation as well. In addition, since these were live concerts, there was only one chance to get them right. I tracked and mixed recordings for many graduates of Greenville College using my own equipment during my time there, and was one of the sought-after engineers for this purpose.

Software/Hardware Projects

Fishapp

A work-in-progress to web-enable my fishtank.  The Fishapp consists of various sensors to monitor aquarium water quality parameters, lights and servos, etc, to control various parameters of the tank (such as LED moonlighting, fish-feeders, etc), a webcam, and a PHP / MySQL web application to track, graph, and control the fishtank.  The Fishapp is open to other users on the internet in a limited form – they can register with the site and manually  (or via an API) add their own parameter readings for their fish tanks.

I Heart Heart Cat Cat Map Map App App

A joke Google Maps mashup created to geotag and display photos of my friends all over the world (wearing a particular funny shirt).  Built with PHP, MySQL (using spatial datatpe extensions), jQuery, and the Google Maps API.

INPUT Magazine

An upcoming project to be launched with my friend Kate Netzler.  The magazine will attempt to live in the space between a trip to a museum and an advanced degree in a subject – i.e. it will offer an entertaining look at a given subject, exploring its implications and connections in a more comprehensive manner than most general-interest features attempt.
