I am originally from Washington State, but now live in Maryland. I’m married to my best friend and we share a house with three cats. I am 55.
I am a student studying computers because I wish to reinvent myself. I am into HTML, CSS, and a few more arcane acronyms.
I compose music. My tools for composition are a Washburn N2 six string with standard tuning, a beat up old B.C. Rich NJ Series 4 string bass, a cheap but functional MIDI keyboard, and Propellerhead Reason 7. Instead of me trying to describe my music, why don’t you visit my page at Soundcloud.
I like to listen to composers with names like Igor Stravinsky, György Ligeti, Lalo Schifrin, John Williams, Danny Elfman…My main influences are people like Frank Zappa, Willie Dixon, Adrian Belew, Adam Fielding, Civil Protection, centrozoon, Lee Fletcher, and Tobias Reber, Markus Reuter…
I work in an actual band made of actual living humans. Our set list includes songs by Jason Aldean, Kieth Urban, and Kenny Chesney, just to name a few. I have really begun to appreciate this music. It’s well produced and very fun to play.
I have no illusions about becoming a star anymore. I doubt I’d like the lifestyle anyway. Just can’t take myself that seriously. I just like to construct sounds, songs, whatever….on the Reason software. I would like to write for film though.
