Dan Green
Owner, Engineer, Designer

Dan is a lover of good puns, bicycling to work, light roasts and dark stouts, the music of city sounds, and above all, his wife Kendra, son Eli, and their Norweigen Elkhound. He's currently trying to learn fine woodworking from youtube videos, Japanese from children's cartoons, and quantum field theory from books written with the dry humor of physicists.

Dan started creating electronic devices that made never-heard-before sounds in 1996 and founded 4ms Company in 2002. He's taught Modular Synthesis at Portland Community College, and electronics theory and DIY kit-building workshops around the world.
Jeannot Quenson
Visual Design, Marketing

While studying under new media professors at the University of Texas, Jeannot Quenson gained experience in sound synthesis through installation and video art. Utilizing sensors and physical objects with MaxMSP/Jitter, he was exposed to the joys of combing art and technology. Tinkering away circuit bending, and jamming on drum machines, he developed a love for everything hardware.
Zach D'Agostino
Circuit Layout, Design, Repairs

Hailing from the east coast, Zach moved to Portland in 2013. As a drummer, he was introduced to the world of circuits after seeing Brian Chippendale use the Coron DS8 drumsynth. He began designing circuits to use with his drums in 2014 and utilizes these creations in his projects Sea Moss (along with fellow 4ms tinkerer Noa) and Don Gero. Zach is currently learning Spanish and programming. Future goals include reading more history books and scoring music to a video game. Zach has a BA in Sound Design from Emerson College in Boston.

Mr. Fang was also conductor of the Furby Youth Choir, a small army of modified toys which terrorized audiences at festivals around the country.

With the help of a good book and a close friend, she developed a passion for designing and building feedback oscillators. These noise machines are housed in old cookie tins and are lovingly referred to as 'the critters'. Noa also enjoys cooking, calculus, novels and walks. In her free time, she and the critters play with fellow 4ms staffer Zach as the band Sea Moss.
