Music has always been a central part of my life. Over the years, as I have developed as an artist, my music has become the primary filter through which I process my experiences and emotions. My creative approach is to use the recording studio as an instrument of expression - to use technology as an extension of physical performance. Improvisation is always a core part of my creative process as I continue to search for the unexpected moments that occur when I perform spontaneously and in-the-moment. This improvisational approach applies both to instrumental performance as well as mixing and effects processing. I find much of my inspiration in the natural world and in my personal relationships. I view the sharing of my music with others as a way for me to more deeply connect with the world and the people in it.
