I currently work on the Magenta project at Google. We're trying to use machine learning to create music and other art. Before that, I built Smule's first music recommendation system. And before that, I helped build a music recognition service at at Microsoft.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Washington for my work with Steve Seitz on understanding Internet photo collections using computer vision. You might have also heard of MySong, which I worked on at Microsoft Research and has since been transformed into Songsmith. My other academic work is listed here.
