Electronic Music and Interactive Technology

Whoops, I got the notice on Saturday and rarely check my emails on the weekends. So here I am putting something together fairly quickly!

The Listserve is such a neat concept. I want you all to know that I really do read (or, at least skim) each and every message you send. Especially, thanks to George F. (Guy) McHendry (A Matter of Words, Words that Matter), Jr. and Ryan (Productively Creative Thinking), whose emails I actually printed out and hung up over my desk at work. :-)


A bit about myself. I'm a software engineer at an aerospace company by day, which is pretty cool, but my passion is dabbling in electronic music and interactive technology with a view to its artistic and creative potential.

I have a "band" (more of a project, really) called Schema Factor - If you're into electronic dance music and want to hear/support something a bit different from the mainstream, please check it out on Facebook and the Web. Looking for similarly minded folks to collaborate with too.


And I'm presently single. I'd love to hear from geeky girls around the GTA. Chances are, if you're on the Listserve, we already have lots in common ;-) Let's go hang out at the Musideum for a concert and then go for drinks, staying up late trying to figure the world out.


I'll leave you with a few quotes that I've collected over the years. Be well.
