Dr David Skulina - CEO, Technical Director

David Skulina

David Skulina is a physicist and musician with a PhD in musical acoustics. His ground breaking research into the effect of aeroacoustic energy losses on the playability of flutes and other wind instruments is really very interesting and a thoroughly good read.

Dr Benjaman Schogler - Creative Director, Business Development

Ben Schogler

Ben Schogler is a musician and psychologist. His research in music, psychology and education has always placed movement at the heart of things. When the funding from NESTA was finally secured in 2006, he packed in his lectureship in developmental psychology at the University of the West Indies, grabbed his bass and hopped on the first plane back to blighty.

He joined Skoog at the end of July for a complete change of pace and to put years of theory into practice. When not writing code for Skoog, he spends his time (and most of his money) buying parts for his beloved 1977 VW Camper van.

Maggie Tam - Applications Developer

Maggie TamMaggie Tam is a musician with a background in music technology. Maggie is the star of some of our Skoog top tunes videos, and has been named as one of the first Skoog virtuosos by some very nice people. When she’s not busy coming up with new tunes on the Skoog, she is most definitely on air at the local hospital radio station desperately convincing her audience that Belle and Sebastian really are the best thing since sliced bread.
