A highly-regarded musical non-profit and collective of musicians. They develop music production classes for underprivileged youth, create art installations, and host international arts exchange programs; often in conjunction with the U.S. Dept. of State.

The review system is still in use by Found Sound Nation / U.S. Dept. of State, and I'm told a number of other government programs have adopted it.

Adobe hired a team of engineers that included myself in order to build out a consumer-facing page on their central website.
