Personal background
Yes, I work for SETI@home/BOINC. I'm also a professional musician. You can get information about my current (and past) projects, gig/tour stories, a list of upcoming shows, as well as other funny tales and random, vain crap about me at my home page:

I've been working here at the lab since 1994 and directly with SETI in 1997. As far as day jobs go I can't complain and so I won't.

As a musician I keep fairly busy. I've toured and performed in over 20 countries, played at celebrity parties in LA and once at a national governor's convention in Seattle, formed many bands in many different styles, and worked on a popular iPhone music game app. The last couple of years have been among my busiest.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Personally, I'm certain there's abundant life elsewhere in the universe. Is there intelligent life that we will encounter during the short course of human existence? That I'm not so sure, but I hope there is.

And I hope that any extraterrestrial race we meet has at least three genders, speaks with a vocabulary of over ten million words, does math in base 174 and composes music in scales that contain over 50 tones per octave. But that's just me.
