Anyone interested in acoustics and structural vibrations might have an affinity for musical acoustics. I'm particularly interested in the acoustics of stringed instruments. I've previously done experimental work for Taylor, Gibson, D'Addario, Fender, and Ovation. I've been working with Taylor guitars for several years and hope to continue for many more.

Most recently, I have been doing vibration testing on both production and prototype Taylor instruments. An understanding former employer allowed me to use a scanning laser vibrometer on the weekends for this work.
