biopix/michael_ashton_200x200.jpg Michael Ashton is an electrical engineer, programmer, and sometime amateur musician. He started his engineering career in semiconductors, at Burr-Brown, then spent twelve years in musical instruments, including a stint at Moog Music, where he was architect of the Moog One, and designed the oscillators. More recently, he has been working for Meta Platforms and running Ashton Research.

Michael has been an AES member since the Burr-Brown days, but only really started to get involved back when he was living in Los Angeles, which had a very active section. He believes the AES is a vital part of the audio industry, and is excited to get more involved and help advance the Society and its activities.
