Music has always been on my heart, and from it as well. From Miles Davis to Shostakovich, from the time I was ten I loved it when people tried something different, whether it worked or not. My early years spent at the University of North Texas and the Aspen Music Festival were pivotal in helping me explore the links between formal training and informal jam sessions. I value both.
Working with musicians around the world in recording and live settings has pulled things out of me I didn't know were there. Conducting sessions in LA, Dallas, London, Oslo, and Budapest gives me great hope for the future of music.
Recording more than 15 projects over the last 30 years has allowed me to step into the "part" of soloist in a new way. Being a music director in churches keeps me close to God and the people.
