welcome. this site is a place for me to share my creative explorations and expressions as well as my academic work. my creative efforts began at age six with the piano and have expanded to other instruments, audio production, composition, computer programming, photography, and video work. this work has taken me well beyond my roots in rural kentucky to the west coast where i am currently pursuing a masters degree at the university of california at san diego. please explore, share, and return from time to time.
