The coolest project I've ever worked on was…a new show on Sundance.com called Reset. It centers on teaching computers about human emotion by feeding it different video and audio clips that correspond to different emotions. I had to enhance the audio for a specific emotion, which forced me to think about sound in a more abstract way.

The greatest thing about working in New York City is…the over-abundance of food available for every session. Seriously, it's the access to incredible talent.

When I'm not in the office, you can find me…spending time with my family, on the golf course or gigging with my “toddler rock” band, Baze & His Silly Friends.
