I have a new page containing my dissertation and other professional contributions.

I am an electrical engineer living in South Bend, IN. I work at the Research Center of Tellabs Operations, Inc., where my recent work has focused on a product called an Echo Canceller. In addition, I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical Engineering at The University of Notre Dame.

My free time is mostly consumed by music. In high school I studied the French horn. As an undergrad at The University of Michigan, I sang with the Men's Glee Club. After arriving at Notre Dame, I joined the ND Folk Choir, a group of singers and instrumentalists that provided music for the 11:45 a.m. Sunday liturgies. About the same time, I was introduced to traditional Irish music (or trad for short), and things have not been the same since.

For those interested in learning more about trad music, I suggest checking out the Ceolas web site. If you are looking for good tunes with which to start, you've come to the right place.

I have created a web page describing injuries common to musicians,When It Hurts to Play with references as well as my observations and experiences.

I have a page dedicated to keyboards and synths.

I also have a page devoted to my favorite prayer poems. In addition, consider reading the texts from one of the best homilies I've heard in a long time. My thanks to Jim Lies, C.S.C. for his insightful perspective. Also, I have posted a copy of An Old Irish Blessing.
