About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Since I was a teenager I've been making short films. I always loved making them but there was something very special about taking the footage into a quiet editing room then placing one shot against another. That's when the magic really happened. And most magical of all was when I would bring MUSIC into these films. Instantly I could see what a powerful effect music had. Though I always had an excellent feel using it in my films for many reasons it would be years before I would compose and bring my own music into them. But when I did it was as if a door was flung open and wondrous, eclectic, powerful music stormed in.

I've always loved Classical and Classic film scores and my music reflects that but I have far ranging tastes including Glass, Vangelis, Bach, Gabriel, Jenkins, etc. "Lost Islands on an Imagined Sea" is my first album. I's filled with what I'd call short and hopefully captivating works taking the listener to distant times and lands.

Dance of the clowns was very well written, although I wouldn't associate that mood with clowns. Well done.

I appreciate your compliments on my choral music. I'm hoping to assemble an octet of classically trained vocalists to perform and record A Dawn Never Ending this summer. It would be nice not to have to hear a virtual performance of my music. ;)

Thanks, Charles, for your comments on Dragonflies in the Wind. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I was listening to your music and appreciate He Stands Alone. It's a beautiful piece!

My view of music is that it can be used to paint a picture, or tell a story. Many of the works I have here, and some on Soundclick that aren`t here, I hope can communicate that. Thanks for the good words. :)

Thank you for listening to my "stuff". There is an ordinance in San Diego that says I must hand out air sickness bags to anyone exposed to my work product. Please don't turn me in.

Stands alone is very impressive. Powerful and makes its musical points efficiently and directly. Nice work. Orchestration is exceptionally skillful. I would like to hear more of this.

As for my "about me" page, every word of it is true, except of course for those words that begin with vowels.

Welcome to the Composers Forum. Some very nice sounds on your website. You will like this Forum. Some really fine composers here and I, for one, have learned a lot.

Where in San Diego? We are now in Pt. Loma.
