Ed Porras

I'm a software engineer experienced in C/C++/clojure/ruby. From 2012-2019, I worked on backend tools for motologic.com. Prior to that, I spent over 10 years working on (Broadcom/ST-based) embedded broadcast systems for Nagravision/Kudelski with a short stint between 2000-2002 as a lecturer for the CISE Department at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

I write music under the name Bang Chemistry often collaborating on tracks with Syntripital. In 2007, we paired up to write the track Quadrants for Zumobi's Beta launch video. They reached out again in 2015 in need for their ZBi Solution marketing video for which I wrote Miss Daisy. In 2017, I wrote three ambient tracks that were integrated into the VR demo for the Never Built NY exhibit at the Queens Museum. The demo is driven by the Visual Vocal VR app and the tracks will soon be integrated into it as well.

I hosted Music Mosaic, an eclectic radio program that aired on WGOT-LP, and produced 250 episodes between 2008 and 2014. I miss doing this but it's too time consuming. Every-so-often, I'll throw together a mix and upload it to mixcloud.
