Welcome! Thank you for stopping by to hear my music. I hope you enjoy it!
I began composing music in 1994, mainly as a hobby, but after that the music took on a life of its own. All my music is instrumental, and with the exception of a few compositions, I have always aimed to create melodies that have a dramatic overtone (for example: "Swallowed by the Night"). The slightly dark nature of my music has allowed me to express my fascination with the mysterious.
Some of my compositions have long musical introductions before fully taking shape and revealing their main themes. After hearing the beginning, you may be surprised at how the song develops (for example: "Edge of Eternity").
There are over 60 of my compositions on this web site. If you would like to hear a brief overview of my music, go to the bottom of my song list and you will see four special tracks. Each one is a sampler-- a "collage of music" for a particular phase of my musical evolution. Clicking on "lyrics" or "Details" will reveal which of my compositions the excerpts were taken from.
Please take a few minutes to hear the music for yourself, and feel free to download an MP3 of any song. As you experience and re-experience my music, I hope you will find it brings you the kind of long-term enjoyment that comes with familiarity!
