Autism Daily Newscast Reviews My Different Drummer Book

Autism Daily Newscast reviewMy book about the development and practice of REI, Different Drummer: One Man’s Music and Its Impact on ADD, Anxiety, and Autism, was recently reviewed by Autism Daily Newscast.

Here is an excerpt:

For anyone with an interest in the therapeutic aspect of music this is a gem of a book.  For parents wanting to explore different approaches to help their children it will make interesting reading.   As a lay person who just enjoys playing the odd CD I found myself a little overloaded with music and technology theory and was more interested in reading about how following a lifelong passion such as drumming can lead to the most unexpected places and discoveries.

Welcome to my blog

Even though I blog regularly on both my business sites – and – I’m just crazy enough to think I’ll have time to write something interesting here as well. The purpose of this blog site is for me to talk about the things that interest me personally rather than the research and whatnot of my businesses.

So, welcome to the ramblings of an adult with ADHD. I plan to talk about music, audio recording, music technology, neuroscience, living with ADHD, and, I suppose, the convergence of all of these things.
