Music

Double bass

Classically trained, inspired by nature. I compose solo works, and also create my own deep, looping harmonies and meditative melodies, incorporating whalesong or birdsong. I play concert halls, yoga classes, festivals, out in nature.

Multiscreen videos

I plan, rehearse, record and edit multiscreen virtual choir and instrumental videos for when musicians cannot play together in person.

Organ/piano

Organist 2011-2020 at St. Luke’s Episcopal, Tacoma, WA. Piano accompaniment for choirs and soloists. Celtic, jazz, tango.

Composition

I write for organ, piano, double bass, flute and even smartphone (yes.) Sacred music for choirs and congregations. Cutting-edge improvisation. Contact me for sheet music.
