ProjectsTitlePageTouch one of the sub-tabs to the left to explore some of my music and art projects.

In addition to my research and writing projects, I have a lifelong passion for music, oil painting and the graphic arts. Beginning piano instruction at 8 years old, I became interested in music theory as a teen and began to study jazz at 14. At the same time, I started to paint occasionally, taking on larger projects later life. These two creative passions eventually came together in my computer software career developing graphics and multimedia applications; interactive education and game titles; and rich-media marketing solutions. It was from this professional experience that my interest in graphic arts was born, leading to the creation of a wide variety of online and offline media projects.

As new audio and visual technologies evolve, I strive to stay current and use new technologies in interesting ways. In recent years, my interest in visual art was reapplied to the iPad as figurative sketches, album art, and magazine covers while my love of music has taken me deep into digital home recording and the latest synthesis platforms. As these creative threads developed, I sought to blend my fiction and non-fiction literary ideas into live mixed-media experiences based loosely on the integrative media concept known as "The Grand Scientific Musical Theater." This section is a gallery of my past projects in each of these areas as I work toward ever larger and more integrated audio-visual projects.
