Hi, I'm Jared.
I am an award-winning composer,
fast-learning software developer,
and passionate carbon removal advocate
based in Brooklyn, NY.

Music. Maker. Creative Risk-taker.

Audio Developer

As founder and lead developer of Authentic Soundware, I transform musical ideas into inspiring software instruments for use in professional digital audio workstations.
Making a modern software instrument involves creating, managing, and implementing thousands of audio, image, and UI assets. To develop products in the most efficient way possible, I've written my own library of reusable KSP scripts (KSP is a proprietary high-level scripting language similar to PASCAL, developed by Native Instruments), and write custom Lua and Python scripts to automate portions of the development process.
As the sole contributor, I've successfully conceptualized, planned, produced, coded, designed, and marketed four outstanding products.
To streamline operations and provide a unique customer experience, I built a custom ecommerce website using the Python-based Django framework.

The Studio,


Media Composer

I'm also an award-winning composer at New Math, where I produce outstanding music for prominent global brands such as Google, Audi, and eBay.
I have extensive experience collaborating with clients and vendors in high-pressure, dynamic environments. Over the course of two decades, I have consistently delivered projects on time, and become adept at conveying complex specialized ideas to diverse audiences. I love working at small companies and embrace the do-what-needs-to-be-done attitude.

Nerd. New Yorker. GitHub-forker.

I’m also a Python developer with skills in web development, relational databases, and data science. In 2022, I earned a verified professional certificate in web development from HarvardX/CS50. I've also completed numerous courses offered by DataCamp and Codecademy.

Some of the tools and technologies I use regularly include: KSP (Kontakt Scripting Processor), Python (Django, Pydub, Pandas), HTMX, Lua, PostgreSQL, HTML, and CSS.


Frameworks and libraries:

Parent. Protector. Carbon-collector.

As a dedicated volunteer at Open Air Collective, I help promote carbon dioxide removal technology and policies to help undo the damage to our climate caused by fossil fuels.
I organize and occasionally host a weekly webinar series, This is CDR, that explores the technological pathways, market forces, policy concerns, and climate justice and ecological impacts of carbon dioxide remove (CDR).

Additionally, I have developed a custom web application that automates the onboarding process for new members and featuring custom integrations of several popular web APIs — particularly the Discord API.
