    Background:

    I became interested in music at a very early age and started playing instruments in grammar school. After discovering classical music in Jr. High School, I began playing the cello and was awarded a scholarship at the University of the Pacific. A few years later I moved to Los Angeles to continue serious study in cello and composition. In addition to being a composer, cellist, bassist and guitarist, musical theory and technology are main interests. I have performed with orchestras, jazz bands, pop bands, chamber groups as cellist, guitarist, bassist, arranger and bandleader. I have worked for many years as a full-time professional musician and continue to perform and teach on a regular basis. I currently live in Poulsbo Washington where I have an electronic music studio for composing, teaching, and video scoring projects.
