As a prolific and imaginative film-maker I enjoy the process of creating the multi-disciplinary art we call "movies" from start to finish, from writing and directing to story-boarding and editing to music and sound effects.  With a lifetime of formal classical music training I bring a unique perspective to the art of film by drawing on my exposure to multi-diciplinary masterpieces across history combined with my distinct sense of humor and timing.  In the "FILM" drop-down menu above are many examples of my work which features a range of styles from comedy to action to drama and even music videos including OUTLAW JAZZ, VIOLA-MATIC, and the crown jewel: UPON THE AWFUL TREE streaming on-demand and with merchandise.  Specializing in merging high quality music with moving pictures (click the FILM SERVICES page for more info), I'm available for commissions and collaborations and am perpetually working on the next project(s) of my own.
