About this Page:

I spend a lot of time at a computer coding data, writing programs, and editing articles. I like listening to music while I work. Although I like many different types of music, I prefer instrumental music when I'm working on political science projects (I find words in songs distracting when I'm working with words in a program or writing). I particularly enjoy ambient electronic music but sometimes switch things up with some classical music or jazz. The variety of music available on the internet is incredible; these are some of the sites I listen to, I hope you enjoy them!

Music for Coding and Programming:
