OToole: About me

I have worked as and audio engineer for almost 15 years. Before that I was an auto mechanic. I majored in English Literature in college. I think that I was looking for an inherent truth in the books, but I never could distil one.

I have an awkward relationship with and the artistic process. I am always taking things apart mechanically. I don’t feel in touch with the creative process and I am challenging myself to explore my disconnect by taking this class.

I have a great respect for people who seem to have a natural eye, hand, and voice. I am very good and structure, planning and timing, but I don’t feel like I have a knack for the original. My goal for ARTS 1601 is to experience not being solely tech support for the arts.
