Jim Schuyler (also known as “Sky”) is best known as an e-learning pioneer, though he has worked in many areas of computer science. He is now working full time in (music) composition and software.
OK, I'll switch to first person now... Why "Sky?" — because the name is pronounced "Sky-ler." Now, if you ask a Dutchman to pronounce it, you’ll get an earful, but that’s another story.
I am mostly found in San Francisco. Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mostly what I do is write and record music for digital media, operating as skyHi Digital.
