Bio & Contact

Bio: The classical guitar is featured in most of my music, and I’ve written for some very fine players, among them Denis Azabagic, Martha Masters, Joe Hagedorn, Daniel Bolshoy, Nemanja Ostojic, and Newman and Oltman Guitar Duo. I’ve won various awards, fellowships, and commissions over the years, and my music continues to be performed around the world. It is recorded on the Ravello, MSR, Cedille, Brioso, and PBF labels, and is published by Theodore Presser.

I’ve performed extensively as a guitarist in several styles and with a variety of ensembles. I have a doctorate in composition/music-theory from the University of Minnesota, and now live in California with my wife and twin sons.

In early 2016 I decided to retire from composing to pursue other interests.
