welcome

Let me introduce myself if we haven’t met…

Feel free to take a break, throw on some headphones or turn on the speakers while you explore the music here.

I’m a father, engineer, project manager and musician who tends to work through ideas by way of paper and melody filtration (yes, that’s my engineering background talking).  I also work hard to write compelling songs.  Songwriting has never been easy for me, but it does come naturally.  It’s always been a satisfying way to process the world and it offers comfort in tough times.

As an avid non-fiction reader, much of what I write reflects observation, questions and response – to what you may ask?  Meaning, turmoil, peace, regret, joy, hopelessness, optimism, past and future.  But hey… sometimes I just write about BBQ sauce!

I’ve been a lifelong musician, performer and songwriter, but now I’m exploring the release of my own material and diving into engineering and production.  I have plans to release much more, God willing.  My hope is that a few songs will connect with your life experience and provide a little fun along the way!

I’m writing all the time, but recording is a separate process that takes more resources.  Please enjoy these tracks as an introduction to my work while I continue to document new material.  You might notice the songs are slightly different styles. That’s because the recording process was executed differently for each as I experiment with tracking methods.  Each song was tracked in different locations with different musicians and instruments.  I also wanted to represent various examples of song-writing structures.

When you enter your email to get the songs, you will be taken to a page with insider-scoop stories behind the artwork and production.

Feel free to contact me with feedback.  I’m especially interested if these songs remind you of another artist or song. It will help me understand how others interpret the work.
