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'm a classically-trained composer who dabbles in a little bit of everything--I have written for a variety of community and (occasionally) professional ensembles, and I also composed soundtracks to quite a few student films in my undergraduate days. I am currently employed as a librarian, but remain active as a composer--recent activities include readings by the Vancouver and Victoria (B.C.) Symphony orchestras and performances by several professional soloists and chamber groups in western Canada. Some day I hope to compose an opera, even if nobody performs it.
