I am a Texas-based composer with a diverse and ever-growing catalog of releases.

I am heavily influenced by artists such as Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, John Carpenter , John Williams, and Carbon Based Lifeforms.  Other major influences include Enya, Deep Forest, Kraftwerk, and Christopher Franke.

My albums stylistically range from Berlin-school, to film score, to ambient and chill-out. Each release is generally based on a central theme that conveys a soundtrack-type listening experience.

In 2006 I released my album The Maestoso Interstellar Suite. This album contains a continuous piece of space music split across 6 movements.

In 2008 I released La Famille Du Solénoïde, which is a musical tour through our solar system, inspired by the book The Planets by Dava Sobel.

Four years later in 2012 brought the release For the Willow Wept…. For the Willow Wept is a collection of soothing electronic music about those once lost and those found.

March of the Inanimate was released in October 2014 which is a homage to the classic horror movie soundtracks produced by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth who co-wrote the music to classics such as Halloween, the Fog, and numerous others

Ambient Highways, released in August of 2015, represents a collection of songs that range from a melancholy like feeling to an exuberant state in their overall composition, yet pulls the listener through theses emotions with the albums crescendoing track Keeping the Dream Alive.

On February 12, 2016 the album Skylines was released. The album contains 9 tracks of exciting electronic rock, synthwave and dark synthpop music with musical visions of Seattle, New York, Beijing China and more that will capture the listening ear from start to finish.

4/20/2016 marked the release of the space music epic The Maestoso Interstellar Suite 10 Year Anniversary Edition and its’ Sister album Singularities – Music from The Maestoso Interstellar Suite.

In September of 2016 I released a new Original ‘N’otion Picture Soundtrack titled Mister Stichs. Mister Stichs is the follow up release to my 2014 Original ‘N’otion Picture Soundtrack album March of the Inanimate.  I additionally released an enhanced and extended version of this album titled March of the Inanimate: Repossessed.

In April 2017 I released the first album of a series based on The Dark Tower books by Stephen King titled Gunslinger – A Journey to The Dark Tower in Music: Volume 1.
August 2017 brought the release of my SharePoint community dedicated album Pillars in Time.

At the beginning of 2018 I released my album Songs from the Wounded Heart.  This album contains new material along with updated versions of fan favorites that all have a sad/melancholy sound to them.  It’s a great primer into some of my more ethereal and ambient works.

I’m sure there is something here to please just about everyone, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your visit and your support.
