My name is Sean. What’s happening? I live in Charlotte, NC with my wife, cat Schroeder, and dog Brie. After living in Boston (and parts of New England) for all of my life, we moved to Detroit in the summer of 2011 and then onto Charlotte in 2016. I started up Nervous Music long ago to keep in touch with my friends and family. But with all the networks to join now, there’s no sensible reason for this site to exist, especially considering I’m on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and Tumblr.

I’m responsible for technology at a cultural exchange program based in Cambridge, MA. Same town where I was married. I’m also a crazy music collector. If you’d like to reach me, just shoot me an e-mail at seanmcg <at> gmail <dot> com.

At any rate, it makes me very happy that you’ve stopped by. So, um, thanks for stopping by.
