About The Author My name is Jerry. I live in the absolute middle of nowhere surrounded by cornfields near Indianapolis, Indiana. Since currently I work twelve hour shifts, six days a week, I have a lot less time for all of my hobbies, so I am finishing this website and updating it every now and again when I make something new.

Those hobbies include making music for either the hell of it, or video games. I don't usually charge for my music and on rare occasions where I try to make some money off of some of it, I go very cheap because I don't really need it anymore.

I am the musician behind Buckshot Software's Project Warlock, which this website probably makes obvious in a lot of places, and I have been pretty proud to accomplish a five hour soundtrack for just one game.

Another hobby I've had since a long time ago is coding and designing levels for the classic DOOM games. Though I'm not expert, I've had some pretty cool ideas for years I hope to one day actually make and stop making so many test levels. It may seem like a mockery that someone messes with a 25 year old game, but people still do this, and a whole new generation found it. Doomworld alone has 20,000 members and there are at last count 71,000 level "wad files" for it.

Musical History I got my start in the realm of music believe it or not in the womb. Apparently my own mom listening to classical music all the time was supposed to do something as I grew, and it did. I learned my own songs on piano at 5, took lessons in the second grade, and probably because I never finished them due to them not being my songs and not being able to pick my own I picked up guitar in the 7th grade with a pretty cool guitar teacher, Randy Williams, who basically let me learn whatever I wanted. As soon as I got the basic chords down I made 4 albums of nonsense and apparently someone stole the stapled papers with all the chord transitions and tabs I wrote with the lyrics. Ah well, I joined a band in 1996 that lasted until 1999 and I made mostly alternative/metal which was a change from the nirvana/beck style stuff previously. After the disband due to life, moving, ridiculous fighting, and work, I plugged my guitar into software named ACID in 2001 after having experimented without it to learn the software in 2000 and went to it, recording and redoing all of the old songs to have different sounds, as I grew tired of metal and depressing lyrics. Everyone loved the stuff in college at ITT Technical Institute before it got shut down, but I wasn't noticed truly until 2017 when I was picked up for a real soundtrack. According to a student a teacher told him years later we were the only class arrangement to actually get games made, as the school wasn't really a good school. Another teacher told me personally years later I'm literally the only one from years of teaching that ended up landing a real job doing it.

The Recording Dungeon In 2018, after PAX East happened, I needed more space for recording and was about to buy a shed for our yard. Instead, my dad chose to partition his shed so I could come over to it and record some things when time allowed. It's also sort of an office, as you can see. All of my computer books are on a massive shelf along with books I bought for college that I've kept for reference guides from my multimedia degree. There are also several journals and "115" pocket journals. No, that's not a brand. I started planning things in pocket journals in 2010. It is June 2019. Amongst the various knick knacks, I have a LOT of saved games from the early 90s up until now in these little 12-disc audio book style cd cases. I'm about to buy another bulk set of 100 more to organize even more stuff and possibly sell handmade boxed sets. The amp and 90's computer in this dated photo is gone. I needed a new one so I sold the old one, and the computer is in my son's room so I have room for a few music keyboards. I still have a plethera of floppy disks and zip disks, and believe it or not, still buy them just for the hell of it. The sounds and smells of fresh out of the factory floppy disks and the limited text-file space makes them good for storing ideas that I'd normally lose on a modern computer do to too many files even with organization, as I write out quite a bit of stuff and change it frequently. Don't worry though I back things up on my own computers. But the laptop you see had a "beer" accident and a bug crawled inside the tower and shorted it out. So much for that! So when it has walls, I'll put a new tower in.
