What I’m Listening to Now

As a Senior Consultant in the Acoustics group, Andy is working on various projects involving educational, commercial and residential facilities. His areas of concentration include architectural acoustics, noise and vibration control, and environmental acoustics. Andy has been an acoustics consultant since 2002, and for many years taught acoustics, physics and mathematics at the New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, and the New England Institute of Art.

It’s all about the sound

Music and engineering have always been two sides of the same coin for me. I have held several teaching appointments which paired my love of helping others and passion for science. I’ve also had the opportunity to play hundreds of gigs throughout North America with the Left Ear Trio, LeanTwo, and The Soul Revival, and as a sideman.

When I’m not playing music or enjoying time with my family, I can be found in the wilderness: rock and ice climbing, skiing, paddling, and running. On bad weather days I enjoy spending time in the shop on wood and metal projects.

Favorite quote: “The most that can be expected from any model is that it can supply a useful approximation to reality: all models are wrong, but some models are useful.”
– George E.P. Box
