There must be a correlation between musicians and tech, because there is a surprising amount of musicians that I know that are also in tech, and vice versa!

There really are! I used to play with a string quartet that was made up of other people who had previously done serious music study but had switched over into tech for various reasons. I linked this in another comment as well but here's a talk I gave about some of the other connections :) wordpress.tv/2016/06/30/helen-hou-...

The skills are definitely transferrable! (Speaking from experience). Plus, supply/demand is more in our favor in tech. It's a shame there aren't more opportunities to make a sustainable living in the Arts.

It really is such a shame, I've always been open that I ended up in a web development job because of money and insurance and because at the end of the day, I do love the piano and being a musician, but I like the computer just about as much and if I look at this pragmatically it makes more sense to make a living on the computer. I wish it weren't that kind of a choice, but here we are.
