Welcome to my site!

I’m currently a senior lecturer in Audio Engineering in the Entertainment Engineering group at The University of Derby. I also work seasonally as a live sound engineer at Gand Concert Sound, located just outside my hometown of Chicago. What I generally keep myself busy with was nicely described in a recent piece by Live Sound International and Pro Sound Web.

On this site you can find information pertaining to my teaching, research and live sound activities. I’ve made various publications and software freely available for download and I post opportunities for funded postgraduate research, when they come up.

I hope some of this material is useful to you. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions/comments. I’m happy to help out whenever I can!
