About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.

I was a software engineer for 14 years and hold an MS in Computer Information Systems and a BA in English Literature. I have been writing songs and/or singing in choruses off and on since age 10. I started writing serious classical music in earnest around April 2006, and love to share music and ideas with other composers. I also love to sing and am a classically trained soprano. For my music work, I use Finale with Garritan Personal Orchestra -- these changed my musical life! Other interests include reading and writing poetry, painting, contemplative practice, cooking for friends, other cultures, good stories, good wine, and good conversation. :-)

More Music at my main music site....

Posted on July 12, 2007 at 12:20pm 1 Comment

Hi everyone,

I have put some of my music up on this site for your convenience, but if you could listen to it on "soundclick", my main site ( ), I'd appreciate it. There you can stream all songs by chart or by composer, and hey, it helps my rating, which is always nice because being on the charts gets more people to hear one's music.

I love Psalm 62, its sense of balance, the angelic dance of ascension.

Hi Karen
Yes me again :-)
Ok I have your link up and running, let me know what you think

Hi Karen!
Yes you can use my website,
Thanks and I will get your posted. I tried this morning, but the hosting company was having issues.

Hi Karen!
OK I will listen to the other movements I have not gotten that far yet. Like you, I also tend to write tender legato type of music.
Yes I do write my own, but then when I need a piano solo for church, thats when I re-write the solo for orchestra, so usually the orchestra stuff is made up while the piano arrangement is already given.
IF you look at my Video... that was recent...and I had to compose music for video directed and created by Zennor Alexander. So thats an example of my dense originallity :-)
For sequencing I use Cubase SX3, for notation I use Sibelius 5.

Hi Karen!
Hey thanks so much for joining me!
Yes EWQL is East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra software I use to compose. Most of this you heard in my demos.
What I meant my soft creative scores, so far what I have listened to, they are very passive & creative. :-)
I am glad that you would like to be a link on my website! I will post it shortly. You can go to and click on the link Musician Friends. It will link back to your soundclick page.
Stay in touch my dear!
