I am a creative technologist, composer, and poet. I am fascinated by the intersection of music, words, visual art, and technology. My interests in music composition are eclectic and wide ranging. They include: simplicity & complexity, baroque organology, algorithmic art, psychoacoustics, improvisation, electro-acoustic music, digital luthiery, tuning theory & temperaments, and art song. I also love to play the guitar, write folk tunes and play in my band.
I hold a PhD in music composition with an emphasis in new media from UC Berkeley. I have studied composition with Edmund Campion, Jorge Liderman, Cindy Cox, Josh Levine, Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, and Ron Caltabiano. I have also studied psychoacoustics and computer music with David Wessel, improvisation with Myra Melford, and classical voice with David Gordon.
