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.
Music cast its spell on me as a child. The first instrument I played (notice I said played, not taught to play) was the flute.

Over the years I have played, the guitar, the trumpet, the violin, the piano and the recorder. I have had many teachers for most of these instruments, and composition and orchestration, but I am largely self-taught.​

Arriving into my teens during the early 1970s had a major influence on the music I listened to and wrote, especially progressive rock, which led to bigger things. I moved on to “classical” music at 18, when I bought my first piano.​

Post-classical music is where my strength and heart is today, although, jazz and baroque music have a strong pull on me. I like to think all three of these styles can be heard in my compositions now.​

The orchestra is the goal for a lot of composers. The sound colours, the shape of the music it can create, and the dynamic of the orchestra cannot be matched, in my opinion.

The orchestra offers the composer a limitless range of expression techniques, and that’s what music is about for me.​

Music is the most empathetic form of communication I know to express to another person what it feels like to be alive.
