About me

Gender Male
Location Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction I'm a composer and pianist living in the Boston area. I write mostly electronic music, in a variety of genres generally orbiting ambient music and post-minimalism. Often I collaborate with Tim Risher as part of the project Paragaté.

My latest album Blake Pieces (2014) is a sequence of electronic pieces inspired by William Blake's Book of Urizen. It is available along with more music by me, Tim, and Paragaté, on the Camerata Music page.
