I’m currently an engineering intern at Dropbox, Inc.. Dropbox undertakes a bi-annual creativity extravaganza called Hack Week, where employees are allowed to drop their normal responsibilities and work on whatever they want for a week.
One of my hack week projects was to organize the first a cappella group at Dropbox (I had a lot of help arranging and conducting). We sang at the closing ceremony in front of about 500 people, and it was spectacular.
The day before the performance (i.e., our fourth rehearsal), a music production expert named Scott Cannon offered to do a quick recording for us with all kinds of fancy mics, mixers, and software. Unfortunately I was standing way too close to the mics and you can hear my voice prominently. But check it out anyway!
