My Studio


A simultaneous overlay of an art studio, a performance space, a web dev + design shop, a recording studio, a used record & book store and a pawn shop, this place is a regular Collyer Mansion for the modern man.

This is a Creative Environment

An extension of skin, bone, circuit boards, paper & vinyl, my work studio is a co-mingling of the obsolete and the cutting edge.

Antiques, cast-aways, 33 1/3 album covers and open-source software interact with a striking visual experience which never fails to inspire hi-quality work.

Glimpses of my studio in LUXURIOUS time lapse

This time-lapse video has some nice interior shots of the studio over the years.

I wrote the soundtrack to this video. Play this loud - there is a killer guitar solo.

My Studio was Featured in the Washington Post Magazine

Genuine Original Compositions

I cannot read or write a note of music, I am self-taught on numerous instruments by ear.

The music selections on this page are a small sampling of the original songs and audio collages I’ve composed & recorded over the years, including work I composed for instruments I do not play (violin, cello, baritone saxophone and tenor saxophone & others.)

Original music created with samples, loops and live instruments. These combine elements of all types of music to create completely unique aural soundscapes.

I usually have a camera with me (a real camera) and have a strong eye for shooting interesting images.
