In addition to my regular work as a mastering engineer, I teach the acoustics class at Austin Community College in the Music Business, Performance, and Technology department. I have an introduction to audio-frequency acoustics class and also teach one-on-one, student-led lessons they call Applied Commercial Music. If you're a student at ACC and are interested in applying for an applied audio slot, see the form lower on the page.

The new ACC Highland campus completed construction during the pandemic years. The Austin Chronicle wrote a nice article about the facility. Tucked away in the "lower level of what used to be Austin's shittiest shopping mall" is "one of the most state-of-the-art recording studios".
