I am a songwriter, composer, performer and educator based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
As a songwriter, I have been active since late 2012, and I have released one EP, while developing my Song Newsletter (see information to the right) and working on an album.
As a soundtrack composer, I have been active since early 2013. You can find samples of my work on this page.
As a performer, I have been active since late 2011. I sing and play the guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, fiddle and piano. I've played with many local bands, and lately I've been pursuing shows as a solo artist; please see my shows page for further details.
As an educator, in mid-2012, following a hiatus of several years from a full-time teaching career, I began to actively rebuild my practice. My goal is to help my students and clients develop their musical skills and expressive abilities through my coaching, teaching, and any other consulting support that I can give. You can learn more about this aspect of my work at this page.
Every month, I send out a newsletter where I make announcements and share a demo of a brand-new song -- which you can download and keep. In this way my fans are the first to hear my emerging work, as it takes shape between studio recordings. Newsletter subscribers are also the first to hear of limited releases, merch, and surprise shows.
Below are a couple of tracks I shared with my newsletter in advance of release. Thank you for signing up!
