Bio & Contact
Bio: The classical guitar is featured in all my recent 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 and fellowships over the years, and my music continues to be performed around the world. It is recorded on the MSR, Cedille, Brioso, and PBF labels.
I was born in the US in 1969, but I spent my formative years in Israel and returned here in 1986. 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 and pursue other interests.
