Music has always been my greatest passion in life. I am a pianist and composer and therefore spend a great deal of time at the piano and writing music. In the summer of 2009 I made my professional debut and released two solo piano albums, spanning compositions I wrote over an entire decade. I am also the owner of my own private record label, Still Motion Productions, which I founded primarily to promote, publish and distribute my music. In between my composing music and running my business, I also perform public concerts seasonally. While my music does take up most of my time, I am also a seasoned web developer and work in that field on the side. I enjoy many other activities as well, such as the arts, theatre, watching movies, trying out new foods, visiting new places, spending time with friends and most importantly with my beautiful wife! =o)

I have a great deal of interests.. Music is definitely very high on that list being that I am a composer. I am also highly interested in science and technology. I have always been facinated by astronomy and cosmology in particular. I like to stay up to date on new scientific and technological discoveries and am well read on a variety of scientific topics. I have an interest in computer modding (modification) and have been building unique systems for many years now. Other then this, I have interests in several political / social topics. I am always interested in learning more about the world, and enjoy good debates of interest with other intelligent people. I enjoy theatre, the arts and love trying out new and exotic foods.
