For more information on my music, my writings on music, and some mp3 recordings, please visit my University Website at and my Blog at

I have taught composition, theory, history and world music at Pacific Lutheran University since 1984. My compositions reflect my interest in musical cultures around the world, particularly Pacific Northwest native cultures, Trinidad, and China.

I also have two manuscripts which can be viewed on my website: On Composition: The Making of Beautiful Things in Sound and Silk and Bamboo: An Intorduction to Chinese Classical Music Through Literature
