For the longest time I was a semi-pro to pro saxophonist, making much of my living playing and teaching. A few years ago, my wife had an incredible job opportunity that brought us to the wilds of England. Suddenly, we were in the middle of the country-side, and the saxophone jobs were few and far between. To stay sane, I started writing at first for big band, and then branching out into electronic and orchestral music. We've since moved back to California, where I decided to make a go of composing as my primary musical avocation! Now any moment not spent with family or work is devoted to music - writing, learning, and performance.
