I grew up in Iowa and moved to Chicago in the 80s. While living here, I've pursued music in many forms. I was in various bands of different genres, but have always been in love with laid back music of the New Age piano category. I believe it brings out our emotions and heals the deep feelings that we all have inside.
The music that I compose are themes that I hear in my life. My training is by ear and I am not classically trained. I just play what I feel. I've been doing this since I was 10 years old in 1974. I composed my first two pieces when I was 13 in 1977 and have been putting down my feelings and emotions on the piano ever since then.
In 2005 I started to compose soundtrack pieces for organizations and non-profits to use in their marketing presentations and plea videos for donations. This lead to more composition in action style videos and dance songs. I've released a dance CD in 2005 and I'm re-releasing a polished re-mastered version in July of 2010. Along the way, I've done so many commercial and marketing songs that I've decided to release an album of unique soundtrack music called Soundtracks From The Edge. These are truly a mix-mosh of styles and genres. From hardcore metal to ambient piano to house and trance dance music to world beats, its an eclectic mix I hope everyone will enjoy.
New releases are pending for 2010. Letting Go and Seasons are my next two releases that I am currently working on and should have them released by year end.
I hope that my music brings you peace and that it helps you through difficult times in your life.
