He's worked on-staff at Electronic Musician, Maximum PC, DJ Tech Tools, Maximum Tech, Keyboard, E-Gear, and Remix, as well as contributed to Mix, MusicTech, Gearspace, and other fine outlets. Markkus’s synthesizer obsession has ranged from a financial liability to a balanced appreciation.

After many years as a full-time editor in the music technology and consumer electronics spaces, he joined the Autodesk Redshift publication as a contributing editor, branching out into the architecture, construction, and manufacturing technology that makes the modern world run.
