I love words and music. As a poet I have recently been engaging the ideas and inspiration of theopoetics. My interests in music composition are eclectic and wide ranging. They include: simplicity, baroque organology, artificial intelligence, psychoacoustics, improvisation, electro-acoustic music, digital luthiery, tuning theory & temperaments, and art song. I also love to play the guitar and sing old folky hymn tunes.
I hold a PhD in music 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.
