"I provide quality composition and performance for every medium through commission and direct purchase, striving to create music that is comprised of a unique voice."
"I have always been a player, but I fell in love with composition the more that I began to write and to share my work with others. I love the feeling of expression and creation that music composition brings, mainly because this language is very idiomatic for my style of communication. My music represents my thoughts and opinions of the world that we live in, and my influences and ideas are the makeup of a unique musical voice. Music is my passion and my life's work; it is one of the few mediums in which I feel completely free to be my truest self with very few restraints. It is through music that my expressions are most natural."
