New York University
As an employee of NYU, I have many roles within the Music Technology department:
MPATE-GE 2650 Ear Training for Audio Engineers
This course examines theories and techniques related to analyzing recorded and environmental sounds. Students will sharpen listening skills with comprehensive ear training exercises and guided critical listening explorations. Topics include frequency discrimination, reverberation, dynamics, distortion, sonic effects, sound ecology and other related topics.

MPATE-UE 1820 Internships in Music Technology
Undergraduate students are required to earn 3 credits of internship credit through practical experience in the Music Technology field. The student is required to find the internship, as the coordinator I maintain the relationships through students and production houses throughout NYC and work with the students to ensure they get the most out of their learning experience.
I work with students to help them during their time at NYU, finding the best courses for them to take depending on their background, goals and abilities.

Audio Restoration Specialist
On February 3rd, 1944, during his basic training to become a Radioman in the navy during WWII, my Grandfather made some phonograph audio recordings to send back home to my grandmother, before they were married. While cleaning out his basement workshop after he passed away, I found these records under a pile of old 78's.
I have since transferred/digitized and cleaned them up as much as possible. The mold was pretty bad, and the signal was originally mostly surface noise. I'm sure if I spent another month on it I could improve the clarity a little more, but the audio is already a 100x better.
These playlists below show both the before cleanup phase, once they were transferred and after they were cleaned up.
