My self-summary
composer, sound designer, recording artist, writer, would-be bon vivant
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly I compose music scores and sound designs for theatre & dance productions, films, the occasional flash animation, and looking to expand into computer games/interactive media. I also work on my own electronic music projects and have released a few CDs. More uncommonly, I write surreal comedy for the stage and occasionally perform; also I teach sound design on an irregular basis at several colleges and theatre schools.
