About me

Greg Hendershott

My interest in music led me to an interest in computer programming, which led me to an interest in business.

I started the music software company Cakewalk in 1987 as a bootstrap. I grew it out of cash flow until 2003, when Roland Corporation became an investor. As I approached the 25th anniversary in 2012, I sold my remaining stake. I wanted to explore new things.

I spent a few years enjoying hands-on programming again, particularly open source projects using Racket.

I did a batch at Hacker School (now called Recurse Center) where I worked on projects using Clojure, Haskell, and Python.

I worked at Droit Financial Technologies where I used Clojure and Datomic.

Most recently I founded Extramaze LLC, where I’m building things using Racket, including a search engine for deals on music gear. Also I am available as a consultant.
