"DAW Solo" studio

Moving to San Francisco in the mid 70's I focused on solo guitar improvisation - performing regularly at The Vorpal Gallery.  I soon became fascinated with concert production.  For a dozen (rewarding) years I balanced my day job (Systems Manager) with innovative concerts for soloists and small ensembles performing works from classical to jazz in a variety of venues.  From small, popular dinner shows such as "Acoustic Cafe at La Bodega" to art galleries, as in my "Sunday Concerts at the Intersection" series, I offered a sophisticated audience a musical adventure.

For the last decade I have focused my musical time on original compositions for guitar,  piano, voice, and computer DAW virtual instruments.  I do my own recording and engineering in my "DAW-solo" home studio where I have self-produced two concept albums which can be explored via my jom-Songs pages. 

 My compositions rely heavily on intuition greatly assisted by formal training.  I have had the good fortune to study personally with:

  • Celin Romero, Timothy Fox - Classical Guitar
  • David Garfield - Jazz Piano.
  • Jim Grantham - Jazz Theory.
  • Ian Faquini - Brazilian Guitar.
