Brief Bio: 

I am an independent scholar whose career runs from cognitive science, through art, music, and the web. I published Beethoven’s Anvil: Music in Mind and Culture in 2001 and am on the scientific advisory board for the Institute of Music and Neurologic Function in New York City. Previously I was a Senior Scientist with MetaLogics, Inc., where I worked on knowledge representation and information design for web-based health services. I've taught in the Department of Language, Literature, and Communication at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and have published scholarly articles, reviews, and technical reports on African-American music, literary analysis and theory, cultural evolution, cognition and brain theory, visual thinking, and technical communication.
