I compose music for solo instruments and small ensembles.

 
 

 
  (new)The following link opens a review of two of my pieces, Move Over and Sneakin' Around.
The review was written by David Dempsey, Professor of Music and Coordinator of Jazz Studies at William Paterson University and published in Saxophone Today Magazine. Read the Review
 
 

 
  Listed below are links to recordings of recent works and a selection of early works. Some recordings are live performances but most are computer generated (as noted) using the digital samples of instruments included in the Sibelius music notation software. If you can, please bear with the computer generated recordings.  
 

 
  These pieces are eagerly awaiting live performances. If you hear something you would like to pursue, please contact me and I will gladly send you pdf's of the score and parts.
