I’m a solo studio musician. Like lots of musicians, I make music because it’s who I am. I have to. I’ve been playing music since the early 1970’s, much of that time using electric and classical guitars.

Somewhere in there, I got a BFA in drawing and painting. But I came back to music. Well, I’d never left it.

Eventually I began working with electronic (synth) sources. I starting recording some of it in 2002. None of it had been publicly released prior to July of 2018. That’s when my album Walking on Roots Leaves No Trail came out.

I’m not a performer or entertainer. I listen. I meditate. And I create. But you’ll rarely find me talking about it. That is, unless you overhear my wife (a composer) and I digging into music creation over coffee at our favorite diner.

This is electronic instrumental music. As I’ve written elsewhere: “This music is probably most at home mingling with the likes of Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Harold Budd, Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Sylvian, and Holger Czukay.”
