I have been described by some as a
"renaissance man”, (which I like much better than
“Jack-of-all-trades”). In addition to my music career,
I've been film maker, artist, photographer, graphic designer,
(and several other things), but now, composing music and
working with creative people in the process has become my
career obsession. I have been writing and playing music for over
40 years. I've toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe, and in
2010 my album (with Erin Aas) ARRIVAL won “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album of the Year” (see ZMR).
I've also been working in recording studios since the early ‘80s,
as well as composing music for film, TV, dance and theatre. I
believe that my two most defining qualities in music are the
ability to solve creative problems efficiently, and the
ability to collaborate with directors, producers,
choreographers, other musicians, and really
anyone whoendeavors to be
