Which brings me to another interest of mine: photography. When I have the time (which has been rather infrequent lately), I enjoy photography, including doing my own processing (for black and white). In 1995 one of my photographs was used in the liner notes for Robin Lane's Compact Disc Catbird Seat. Perhaps some day I'll scan in some more of my pictures, get my darkroom set up again, ...
But perhaps my biggest passion is music. I enjoy music. Many types. I attend lots of concerts (mostly rock clubs these days, but also classical, folk, blues, jazz, etc.) and, time permitting, attempt to play keyboards (which I do so poorly at this point that I won't let anyone else hear). And, of course, I listen to lots of recorded music, too.
I have occasionally done sound in clubs, and for a few years I was the sound guy for Girl On Top, doing sound for them at many of the rock clubs in the Boston area. When I was at WPI, I was the Advisor to the WPI Lens and Lights Club (LnL) for five years. I often helped out on sound, and I could frequently be found running the monitor board at pub shows. I have run the monitor board for, among many others, Throwing Muses, Belly, Letters to Cleo, Guster, and Tribe. I also assisted with sound in several theatre productions (see below) and advised many undergraduate projects dealing with computers and music.
Another of my interests is theatre, and when I was at WPI I was very involved with Masque, WPI's theatre group. A short play of mine was presented as part of New Voices 12 (April 1994), another was presented as part of New Voices 1-3 (April 1995), and two more were presented as part of New Voices 14 (April 1996). One of these was presented again in September 1996 as part of New Voices 14.5. Additionally, I have appeared in a number of productions, as well as assisting with various technical aspects. I am also a member of the Rho Kappa cast of Alpha Psi Omega, the national theatre honor fraternity. And prior to my time at WPI, I was involved in various theatrical productions while in college, high school, and earlier. All nonprofessionally, of course. If you write plays, you may be interested in my LaTeX style option designed for this purpose.
