"I consider myself a part-time or full-time established professional artist who routinely produces/performs. I actively market my work."

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
I actively compose and perform classical music. My focus is on writing new music for specific public and community events. Past projects included the composition and performance of my Dedication Fanfare for Brass Choir and Percussion, premiered for our Saint Cloud Public Library Dedication Ceremony on September 20th, 2008. I am currently writing a composition for the Saint Cloud State University Wind Ensemble, (for which I play contrabassoon), to be premiered on our tour of Italy in May of 2010.
