I am a composer and arranger of choral, vocal, and instrumental works. I maintain a private music studio and currently serve as Director of Music for St. Leo Parish in Tacoma, Washington. I earned a BA in piano performance and MA in music performance (composition emphasis) from California State University, Fresno. I studied composition with Budd Udell, Jack Fortner, and Robert Strizich, and piano with Ena Bronstein, Patricia Dinkins, and Karen Waters. I have received commissions for choral works for choirs in Florida, California, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Idaho, and instrumental works (concert band and strings) from Idaho and Tennessee. My music is published by E. C. Schirmer, National Music Publishers, JRD Publishing, St. James, and ValleySong Press. I currently reside in Tacoma, Washington.
I am always interested in receiving commissions. You may contact me through this site.
