I am a composer of instrumental and vocal music as well as interactive computer music.  My most recent works are Cadences (2016), commissioned by the Electric Earth Concert Series as part of a collaboration with novelist Richard Powers; and Piano Roll Prosody (2017), which was premiered by pianist Donald Berman.  Current projects include a piano trio, a solo cello composition for cellist Ashley Bathgate, and a work for soprano saxophone and string quartet.
