I played my first note on the trumpet when I was in elementary school. After years of loud blatting sounds I decided to pursue a composing career. At the ripe age of 18 I moved to LA to pursue that dream.
Looking back now I realize it was the passion of music, and no one could tell me otherwise, that prompted me to move from a small town in New Mexico to Los Angeles.
I attended the Dick Grove School of Music and studied under the busiest working composers and studio musicians in LA.
Being a very curious person has kept me exploring current trends that help me maintain the composing, orchestrating and music preparation career I have enjoyed for the past 35 years.
I now live and work between Los Angeles and New Mexico. When I’m not glued to a computer screen, I’m taking a quiet stroll in the country, reading, and spending time with those close to my heart.
Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule.
Without music, life would be a mistake.
Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.
To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music is the universal language of mankind.
