Pursuing my MBA/MSE at Carnegie Mellon University (Dec 2014 grad date) & interned in PwC's IT Strategy and Enterprise Architecture practice (Summer 2013). Before my Masters, I was a Software QA Tester with a dual Bachelors in Business Management and Economics. Aside from work and study, I dabble in Music, Philosophy, Games, and other random interesting things.

comment What instruments are inexpensive, portable and not too loud?
Would something like the Korg Kaossilator be okay? You can play with headphones, fit in your backpack, plug it into your computer and record music with it (like in Garageband or Adobe Audition), and pick one up for around $100 (new) or $50-$80 (used).
