I compose and play music by ear as a lot of musicians do;

no lessons or formal training;

but I hear music in my head at different times when least expecting it;

usually around a thought, personal experience, mood or some inspiring moment or event.


In an effort to get to those tunes (before they're forgotten) I've designed and built instruments in my small woodshop attempting to capture and deal with the sounds and themes which in times past were difficult for me to totally form and articulate on the guitar alone which in turn has lead to the discovery of many other ideas and option.


This website is meant to be kind of a journal of adventures and also a creative space to help articulate my personal philosophy in a way that can intersect with other life expressions be it art or any other type of life's work requiring inspiration, motivation, meaning, purpose or insight.
