I'm a "washashore" Cape Codder(Massachusetts)living in  house on a hill in the trees by the marsh. I am surrounded by the rolling dunes, forest and wetlands visited by thousands every year.

I studied music at the University of Idaho at Moscow in the 1970's forming several bands both rock and jazz. After moving to Washington DC to listen to the musicians in the fabulous jazz scene, I moved to the Cape finding peace and a supportive environment for concentrated composing.

My work progressed through jazz, pop and sound art into classical music based on these roots. I like Jennifer Higdon, Kitty Brazelton and Arvo Part; Thelonius Monk and Meridith Monk; Barbara Borden, Rick Sowash, Chopin and Erik Satie.

Oh, and hundreds of other composers.
