Every life tells a story and this website is the continuing story of my life.
Through my careers in diffraction physics, music and acoustics for 5 decades, I have been privileged to know, learn from, and collaborate with excellent musicians and the brightest and most creative minds of my generation.
This personal profile traces the evolution of my life from Birth to the Present, with links to my Early Life and education, my diffraction research at the Naval Research Lab (NRL), my musical recordings at Underground Sound, which was the genesis of RPG Diffusor Systems and the sound diffusion industry, the Chesapeake Acoustic Research Institute (CARI), REDI Acoustics and RPG Acoustical Systems. I also include my Publications, Recognition and Reflections.
