I remember as a child of four, listening to music and watching the designs on the wall paper change and flow. Although I am now an adult and I know my boundaries a little better, I still love the times when I am sick with a fever, or very tired; my imagination runs wild with music in ears.
My father was a large influence in my life, being a musician and a music teacher. I studied trombone, voice, and music education in school, and classical guitar in my adult life. In recent years I have been creating music for other instruments, exploring the expression and colors other instruments bring.

I have lived in Oregon since 1984, arriving on Independence Day, July 4th, on a bright sunny day that ended with fireworks. Since then I put down roots, with a wife, family, and friends. Oregon has a richness in it's people to match the beauty of its mountains, forests, and ocean shore.
