Short Auto Bio

Numerous artistic and philosophical resonances have led me upon a series of exploratory expeditions throughout Asia.

Drawn to remote mountain ranges, forests and rural villages, retracing the roots of key 'sacred' musical/geometrical theories and relevant arts and crafts.

Traveling for years in search of traditional instruments, immersing myself in their founding cultures while studying their respective mathematical and linguistic formulas,philosophical/spiritual contexts and classical construction methods.

Periodically recruiting/joining fellow musicians and travelers to form spontaneous 'street performance' groups in the guise of progressive rock/jazz fusion bands, experimental 'World' ensembles & audio/visual fire twirling acts.

Documenting these nomadic adventures in illustrated diaries and recording my contemplative explorations in the form of drawings, paintings, poetry, short stories & musical compositions.
