For over 30 years, I have been composing, performing and recording original music. My orchestral and chamber works have had numerous live performances, and my original scores can be heard in feature-length films, documentaries, industrial videos, and other creative projects.
With many and varied influences from both classical and popular music, my sound at times seems equal parts minimalist, impressionist, and neo-romantic. I describe my style as "Intuitive, loose tonal." I like setting up new systems and rules for a new work almost as much as I like bending and breaking them. I believe that no matter how beautiful the construction and theory behind a piece, the ear should always be the final arbitrator of what remains in a finished musical work.
Or as I sometimes like to say, When theory and the ear disagree, the ear is always correct.
Revision of my 2007 work A Brief Symphony is complete.

Take a listen here:
"Oneironaut" means "explorer of dreams." It is used primarily to describe those who practice the art of Lucid Dreaming.
3/19/10 Oneironauts, my work for large orchestra, is finally
finished. The complete score and mp3 file will be available for download within the next couple of days,

This work has been in the making for over three years, but I had set it aside a number of times
in order to make time for other projects.

piano works into a published collection, and trying to decide what to leave out.

6/6/09 I have just finished a major revision of my 2007
score Equilibrium. This new recording and score represent a significant
overhaul of the original orchestration. Please have a listen!
Though at first glance, Equilibrium may appear to be a piano
concerto, It may be better described as a concerto for orchestra with piano.
