Brief Biography
Back in the early 1970s, I was a music education major at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. I studied composition with Paul Schmeling and John Bavicchi. I also got a little help and guidance from Newton Wayland (arranger for the Boston Pops), Joe Raposo (composer of the Sesame Street theme) and Gunther Schuller (Pulitzer Prize winning composer). Finding music to be a very non-lucrative career I went back to school to study electrical engineering and have since had a very rewarding career as an analog integrated circuit designer. A few years ago (nearing retirement) I decided to learn clarinet and start composing again. i am now studing composition at the University of Arizona with Daniel Asia, Adriel Reynolds, and Christian Martin. I have written about a dozen works for solo guitar, another 2 dozen for small chamber ensembles, 2 short movie scores and 6 works for full orchestra.
