A passion for music, which has been with me since childhood, sparked my fascination with the guitar and inspired me to pursue a life-long exploration of its many voices. With the passage of time, I have come to fully appreciate that it is the silence between the notes that accentuates their meaning and grace, so my goal in performance is to execute each piece with precision and delicacy while honoring the silence between the notes.
The mystery and bounty of the natural world have nourished and informed my life, drawing me to examine nature's endless variety of sights, sounds, textures and aromas. It has been a joy and satisfaction to experiment with common objects, some natural and some man-made, giving them a "second life" to create pieces of art that are useful, unusual and esthetically pleasing.
In all that I do, I strive to demonstrate my gratitude for the gifts of music and nature, which have enriched my life so abundantly.
