My work is a beautiful mash-up of composing, session playing, programming, and sound design. I love what I do and I'm blessed to have been part of some great records and projects with amazing people over the years.

Most days I’m in my home workspace or in another studio doing something music related. I’m passionate about sound and mood and vibe; the way music makes you FEEL is what you remember most. In addition to my day-to-day, I have an ambient piano project called Cloud Cover. It’s music for peace and healing and can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, and most other streaming platforms.

I also love helping people learn; I run an online piano course called Vignettes, where I teach my approach to piano and keys.

I live in Tennessee with my amazing family, out in the country where bovines and bugs outnumber the humans. That’s not a bad thing. I love music but I’m inspired by visual things; mainly nature and industrial design. Motorbikes are a passion and not too many days go by without a ride or time in the garage tinkering with something two-wheeled. I enjoy hot chocolate, reading, and quiet walks in the woods.
