About Michael Carnes

Like many people, I'm a lot of things.  I'm primarily a musician who took a detour. After spending time on the road as a guitarist, I completed an education in classical composition. I've been fortunate enough to have several good performances, some of which you'll find here.  I was not drawn toward life as a teacher, so I followed another childhood interest--science and math.  This began a technology career that has lasted nearly 40 years. This culminated in the founding of a company in 2012.  You can find out about that elsewhere on this site. Unfortunately, my recent compositional output has been reduced, due to time constraints. That won't be forever, and I look forward to getting back into compositional harness.

This site focuses mainly on my non-engineering interests--music, photography, astronomy and a few other things.
