Anson was born and raised right here in Houston, TX. In junior high school, he was in choir just long enough to meet Kurt and make a new lifelong friend. Anson then joined orchestra and picked up the double bass. Music carried him to Baylor University in Waco, TX, where he earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory and met his future wife, a violinist named Elvia. From there, Anson returned home to Houston and changed course a bit, earning a second Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Houston. Anson is now a full-time iOS software developer, though he still takes time on occasion to pick up a bass and perform.
Anson edits the show and manages most of the other technical aspects of Blank Tape. His other hobbies and interests include CrossFit, film scores, lattes, reading, and gaming.
