Artist Bio

Influences:   All youze guys & gals.

Hi, I run FAWM (mostly). I'm a science nerd and pop music junkie who grew up in the bluegrass, went to school in the tundra, and now I work in steeltown. I've played in bands in all of those places. For the 9-to-5 thing, I'm head the research group at Duolingo (http://duolingo.com).

Thanks for fawming with us.

I was volunteering in rural Haiti for the first 10 days of FAWM this year, where the Internet isn't really a thing. So if you had any technical concerns with the site, you should have contacted @ericdistad. I'm playing catchup (musically and technically) now that I'm back...

Check out my bandmates: @deliciouspastries!
Check out my former bandmates: @briansmith, @wynia!

    Hey!, love that, "Dust Goggles", Stray Cats. 😀

  • @ericdistad  Feb 16

    You know - I just realized I haven't left anything on your wall this year! 😀 I would say #14 here we come... but we are more than half over.

    Hope you managed to crank out a song or two this month! 😀

    FAWM is awesome as usual. Thanks for keeping this train going.

  • @seanbrennan  Feb 10

    Welcome back! Hope you didn't come back to "why can't _____ do _____?" We appreciate everything you do, and all the infrastructure you've put in place for the first ten days to go as smoothly as they did!

    welcome back! I think you'll dig this- largest audience for a new fawm song, largest 'band' assembled for a fawm song- (as far as I know)- so, I was at this protest rally a week ago, got 500+ people to chant/sing this song! couldn't have happened without you starting fawm! http://fawm.org/songs/67879/

    Burr, I need to thank you for two things:

    1) FAWM - I love this place, and you make my life better.
    2) Duolingo - my Esperanto is coming along nicely (97 day streak!). LOVE that platform. You people ROCK!

    Burr, burr, he's our man, if he can't do it, well, he's probably in Haiti doing really nice things for people who appreciate multicolored hair. Thanks again for all the fawmlord activities.

    You run FAWM? Does Baron Charles Frankenstein run Eva. No, you gave life to FAWM, but it has become become it's own master. 😀

    Hey Burr,
    Thanks once more for running this big music-science-amaze project. I'm really excited to get going on FAWM 2017.

  • @steffan  Jan 29

    Burr... I'm pretty sure fawm is the reason I still make music... for better or worse...
