Welcome

Dear Visitor,

My work often focuses on the sonic terrain between music and spoken word. A melody is a story and a story is a melody. I consider this a sub-genre. That’s why this new website is divided into three main categories: sound Installation, radio, and music/performance, which includes composer commissions, performances, and recordings. Enjoy carousing through the listening samples and broadcasts!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
