I learned to play most musical instruments by ear, but oddly learned to play the drums backwards. So I learned righthanded on a left handed kit, and formed a band called Eclipse.
After winning a few songwriting contests and talks with Lone Wolf Productions (Bill Ham / ZZ Top) I bought a piano and signed up for counterpoint and more theory with Paul Cooper and Marcia Citron at the Shepherd School of Music. But most of my time was spent at the library studying the scores of Ginastera, Piston and Copland, who are without a doubt my favorite composers. I did two seasons as a tenor with the Houston Symphony Chorale. Then the music business began its great decline. Today I continue to create original music, art and film work at Michaelmas Studios and still perform with my longtime musical group, The Eclipse Orchestra.

For three decades the music business has been broken. But now, via the net, artists can sell their music. We can change the world. Pray for peace.
