Several decades of successful software engineering practice as both staff member and consultant, with a concentration in embedded systems. Over ten years of current experience in medical device development, following on the heels of many more years as a developer of operating code for professional electronic music products. Solid understanding of electronics (BSEE) and ability to work hands-on with digital and analog hardware down to the component level. Strong emphasis upon quality of code, including appropriate architecture design, logical organization of functionality, design for testability, rigorous testing of code as it is developed, human readability and ease of comprehension of source code, and clear source code documentation. Speedy development via thorough understanding of the complete system including hardware, careful problem analysis, preference for the simplest robust approach, anticipation of potential failure cases, minimization of special-case handling, and avoidance of counter-intuitive shortcuts and ”quick and dirty” implementations, always with the goal of creating code that immediately works as intended and can successfully be extended and modified by others without breaking, thereby avoiding time lost to debugging and the high cost of undetected bugs.

My name is Ashland and I have an audio-visual project titled True Wings. It is an experimental music, visual, and performance project. I intend to do live DJ sets, performances, and art shows in the future but I am still in the process of creating an aesthetic and portrayal for True Wings. I am mainly looking for a producer or producers to make the instrumentals for my tracks. I will be doing vocals and ep/album artwork. Also will be creating promotion for these tracks. In the end product of our track(s) we make together you will for sure be 100% credited for the work you have done. *My biggest inspirations are ARCA , DOON KANDA, and CRYSTAL CASTLES* But other than that situation - I am also more than willing to help other artists and musicians with their own work and projects.
