Personal Statement

I am a classical composer and performing artist. I believe that we as artists should be engaged in our communities and political structures. I create works that are cutting edge, but that also have an appeal to the listener's curiosity and sense of involvement.

November, 2010, CD—Uncommon Time

This is a recording of my piece for flute/alto flute/voice, based on the poetry of Allen Ginsberg. I am the performer, speaking the text and then performing the piece, which uses that text as well.
