Presenter Bio: Steve Cunningham

Steve Cunningham operates a small but tiny web development agency called Big Fluffy Web Help located about two hours north of New York City and a half hour east of Woodstock (yes, that Woodstock) in the Catskill Mountains of New York state.

In the 1980s Steve worked for several audio companies including JBL, Yamaha, Mackie, and WaveFrame, a startup in Boulder, CO that created one of the first multitrack computer-based audio recording and editing systems. Steve did a little bit more than dabbling as an audio engineer and performing musician who provided synthesizer tracks for artists including Stevie Wonder, Toto, and Bette Midler. He mixed several commercial records and freelanced in the esoteric field of forensic audio for law enforcement and several attorneys.

In the mid-1990s, Steve began teaching audio engineering as a professor of music technology at the University of Southern California. During his tenure at USC, he created some of the first web design classes within the Music Industry program. He taught music students to create their necessary websites using WordPress.

Steve retired from USC in 2015 and founded Big Fluffy Web Help, a company that provides web hosting, development, and design for some commercial small businesses and some large'ish non-profits.
