Music

Beyond academics, most of my time and thought ends up turned toward music.  I am a self-taught jazz pianist, taking strongest influence and inspiration from such forebears as Ahmad Jamal, Clare Fischer, Keith Jarrett, and (especially the final months of output by) Bill Evans, as well as from contemporaries like Robert Glasper, Sullivan Fortner, and naturally many others across time.  In an earlier phase of life, I played guitar (and other instruments) in Midwest emo/screamo, experimental heavy metal, and avant-garde electronic bands and projects.  I am happy to share recordings with anyone interested in hearing them.
