Composer / Producer / Bass Player / Educator
I am really excited about having the chance to help you develop your musical ideas, your mixes, your musicianship, your career and anything else I can help with.
I have written, produced, and mixed over a thousand pieces of music and I have had something I created or helped shape, played somewhere in the world, every week for over 20 years, whether it be on radio, television, cinema, online or anywhere else you can think of. I have managed to do a few gigs along the way as well.
Music is about expressing yourself and creating magic. It is how I connect to other people and the world around me.
I am guessing that if you are on this site, it is probably the same for you. Not only that, but you are doing one of the smartest and most important things you could ever do. You are searching for the knowledge to better yourself and your music.
Let me help you discover new ways of approaching your music. Some things might be technical, if we are discussing your mixes. Some things might be physical, if we are talking about how you are with your instrument. I don't have all the answers, no one does, but I can promise you one thing. I will do my best to share with you as much as I can to help you on your way.

If you’re looking for someone with patience, experience and a calm logical mind to guide you on your musical journey then you’d be knocking at the right door!”

Composer / Saxophonist / Pianist
Music Review and Feedback
I am a Seattle-based music composer for video games, a piano teacher, and a saxophone performer for numerous bands and local DJs. I have a critical ear and a strong motivation to see other musicians succeed in expressing the best versions of their work. I'm detail-oriented, which sometimes leads to the issue of perfectionism. However, in the realm of constructive criticism, I believe my conscientious ear is quite useful.
I obtained my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition-Theory from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as well as my Master of Music degree in Music Composition for Film from the Seattle Film Institute. Alongside my many years as a freelance composer, performer, and teacher, my schooling gives credence to my ability to explain melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and formal concepts with the proper terminology. I can communicate these ideas to help refine any musical product, both compositionally as well as in the production stage.

Vocal Performance Review
I am a music producer and recording engineer with over 25 years of experience. I am very experienced in full album productions for bands and solo artists. I have played guitar since I was 11 and can play bass and sing harmonies. I like to really dive into a song and work on every aspect of the arrangement, melodies, harmonies, lyrics, and rhythm. I can offer very good feedback for your original compositions. And I can make suggestions on recording styles, techniques, and production concepts that will help your songs really jump out of the speakers.
