mdguitar1b1401I am a San Francisco Bay area music producer, recording artist, and journalist with over 30 years experience writing arts and media reviews for nationally published magazines and more recently world-wide on the internet. I’m currently the music editor for the Los Angeles-based Awareness Magazine as well as a free lance journalist/ publicist, and editor of Music and Media Focus.


I also belong to The Recording Academy and am a voting member of THE GRAMMY’S.


As a recording artist I have 5 CD’s of ambient music with elements of Indigo Moonelectronic, jazz, and rock. My latest release, “Indigo Moon“, features a guest appearance by Jefferson Starship and Rod Stewart keyboardist, Pete Sears.  Also appearing as a special guest is new age music pioneer Steven Halpen, whose record label distributes this album, as well as my previous release, “Atlantis Rising,” which was named by CD Baby as “one of the best new releases of the year“.

Along with studio recording and producing projects for other artists, I perform doing  electronic music and synthmulti-media shows  in addition to  playing synthesizers and electric guitar in the band, SpiritMoves.






I also produce music videos, such as the one for Indigo Moon below, as well as creating soundtracks for video, guided imagery, etc.
