Interests include creating interdiscplinary art, primarily composition and performance of electroacoustic music. I'm interested in the 'technical' aspect of music, ie. music analysis/theory. I'm not really a 'theorist'; it's simply a hobby: I consider myself more of a composer/performer. I play saxophone, and like improvising. I like to play jazz, blues, rock, and weird avante-garde stuff. I also play EWI (electronic wind instrument). I'm into 'algorithmic' composition, and have designed an interactive program that allows a performer to interact live with a computer. I've used this system to create several musical and dance works.

I'm interested in historical subjects, including the Adirondacks, Western Europe, Vikings, as well as Musicology.

I love camping, canoeing, boating, travelling, biking, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowsledding, swimming, snowshoeing, hunting, and climbing mountains.

I'm an avid reader and collector of Bizarre Science Mystery Crime comics
