Does what it says on the tin.
I play every instrument on all of my albums, including piano, organ, acoustic and electric guitars, fretless bass, sitar, and synthesizers. I write a wide range of genres and my inspirations range from classical symphonies to alt rock to progressive rock to new age. I write, perform, edit, and publish several albums a year on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal, Rdio, and more.
A lush, ethereal, introspective piece somewhere between progressive and classical, featuring sitar and bamboo flutes.

An introspective, gentle prog-rock-like 24-minute instrumental depicting the course of a night as it transforms from a melancholy evening to strange dreams and nightmares, and finally to a sunny morning.
A short solo piano EP that follows a life through six stages. This album was my high school senior project.
A ten-minute symphonic piece about an astronaut who becomes lost in space and is unable to return home.
An older ten-minute instrumental song in three movements, inspired by my time in California.
I'm a visual designer and musician.
I help people share their ideas with the world by wrapping them in great-looking visual packages—websites, videos, logos, posters, and more. I create clean, modern designs and I insist on creating every piece of the puzzle myself. You don't half-ass what you do, so don't let someone else half-ass its design.
In my spare time I write music, sketch cars, run a bunch of websites, and meditate in the woods. I even dabble in photography and writing.
