Shaun AKA Doublehead
Shaun Oster is often referred to as a “renaissance-man.” He’s a drummer of all styles, most notably jazz and funk; published chef, programmer, inventor, virtual reality/web programmer, composer and singer… Shaun prefers the term “Life-Hacker.” Someone who looks at the fringes of each task and tries to find his own way to tackle it. “With arts like bread-making, beer-making, drumming, etc, people tend to fall upon the knowledge of the first person to do it well as the scientific standard. But then they lose the knowledge of knowing WHY some things don’t work. I prefer to experience all variables so I can develop a stronger intuition of what I am trying to accomplish.”
