Here is a little about the work I do. Music, wow. I wish it could be as simple as describing it as a language, a threading in conversation, an old friend or foundation, but it is so much more complicated than that. I have spent time both running and embracing it and somehow there it is, always. That pesky, wonderful underlying part of my life. I adore it. Here, I keep an updated list of work and projects. It's a bit more 'about' me - a very large part of me. For Blog posts, click here.
