Musically, my path has been one of self-study, allowing for an open exploration of the topics that capture my curiosity. I play a variety of instruments and spend much of my time composing. I have also been working as a music teacher for over 17 years, for which I'm very grateful. The musicians that have influenced me most, and whom I consider my primary teachers, are W.A. Mathieu, Ted Greene, Pat Metheny, and J.S. Bach.
Humanity and our collective future have always been of great importance to me. Our potential to live in harmony with ourselves and nature, to be a blessing rather than a burden to our planet, is immense. A considerable amount of my life has been spent in research (scientific, philosophical, historical, etc), discovering and encouraging the ideas and people revealing the way forward to a prosperous and generous world for all beings.
To all of you pursuing your love of music (or whatever else it may be), I applaud and thank you. Share your gifts with the world and let your authentic expression shine! Together, we can infuse our society with beauty and love, respect, and compassion.
