Started my electronic music studies in 1972 at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, where I was the first non-visual, electronic music and performance art student in the school's history. I accomplished this by attending my first 4 months as a "sneak-in" student, thanks to passes written for me by conceptual artist and Dept. Head Jay Jaroslav, later to become my main professor when I got accepted. He had studied with Karlheinze Stockhausen in the early sixties after graduating from Juliard with honors. My other primary instructor and influence was Larry Johnson, who introduced me to Balinese gamelon music and repetitive patterns way back then.

I've done many concerts, mostly featuring experimental and conceptual approaches to making music, but never went in the "random music" direction that was popular in the experimental music arena, nor was I fond of thoroughly computer-generated music. I've always felt that music was best when a human hand was "at the wheel" giving it expression and communicating the deepest human feelings through that magical connection as a performer.
I used to be a video editor in the eighties, when it was all mechanical equipment and pretty terrible quality-wise compared with today. Editing burned me out, and I seldom do any these days, opting for live videos with no editing at all.
For many years now recently, I was the main "help desk" guy at the Camstudio forum, and did a bunch of videos on that software using it to record itself! That got me started doing videos that I uploaded to YouTube.
Then, I was one of the "Pioneers" with a group of others at Google Plus who dove into doing Hangouts-On-Air, and that evolved to me doing streaming using OBS and YouTube Live Streaming - first a bunch of shows with a daily theme, and then a weekly 2-3 hour long variety show (The "Blue Juice Jubilee Variety Shows). So, I got a lot of practice!
