I’m Brian Owen, a professional trumpeter and software developer living in Pasadena, CA. I spent all my junior high and high school days huddled in a practice room trying to become the best jazz trumpeter in the world. After school I packed up my horn and pocket full of dreams and headed to Los Angeles. After a few years of ups and downs, and plenty of dues paid, I decided the hustle is best left to those with a higher tolerance for starvation. I did what any resourceful musician would do and tried my hand at software. It turned out software folks were just like musicians, but they actually made a living. My first few projects were for the iPad and iPhone, with plenty of other one-off projects that will never see the light of day. Currently I work for a database reporting company and maintain a steady slew of music projects, as well as writing my observations about the intersection of the two, as well as freelance life in general.
