All About Me

My Bio

I was born in Lakewood, California in a hospital that no longer exists.  I am currently a freelance composer, conductor, performer and photographer.  My interest in music presented itself at the age of four when I would compose short pieces for the piano.  I continued my studies on composition and conducting at California State University in Long Beach where I receive a Bachelors and Masters degree.  My compositions have been performed throughout the country.  I have written pieces for a variety of ensembles including music for concert band, choir, orchestra, chamber ensemble, percussion ensemble, solo voice and electronic media, and music for film, TV and commercials.  My photography has been used for cd covers and sold to tourism ads.  He currently has an electronic cd released by Bluehush and currently sold on CDBaby and other online sites like itunes
