Greetings. i wrote this website mostly by hand in 1999. It was updated once until now 9 2023...You have arrived at the
Hopefully this web page will provide an adequate look at my interests and lead to
positive and creative interactions.
a quick synopsis:
reading (non-fiction mostly), aromatics
(perfumery, essential oils and incense), music,
and minerals, sound for video
i have been creating electroacoustic
music since 1981. my main instrument for many years was the electric bass
played through successively larger and larger amplifiers and lotsa FX pedals. i play small percussion such as bells, hand drums,
shakers, chimes, tibetan and quartz crystal bowls, and synthesizers and effects devices
some of which i built. i am creating sounds primarily with computers until i set up a proper hardware jamspace.
my musical creations are electro-acoustic, space
drone, psych*delic, trance inducing, improvisational, noise & sound sculptures. i am
mostly involved in very loosely structured improvisational jamming and novel uses
of new sounds.
Since 1994 i have
been involved professionally in the trade of aromatics, essential oil
blends and perfumes. my original interest in aromatics began
with incense which i sampled extensively from the time i was 14 years
old. in the summer of 1994 i started making custom blended
massage oils and selling them at concerts and music festivals .
i entered the essential oil trade with about 12 oils,
then 20, and onwards (100s). extensive study of essential oils, perfumery, and aromatherapy became part
of my daily life. i am still studying and formulating, i've been involved in natural perfumery since the 2000s.
Gemstones and mineral
very much involved in gems and mineral trading, buying, selling, and gifting and
receiving pieces. i became interested in minerals in
the summer of 1994. i'm still somewhat puzzled by how deep i've gotten.

As a preteen i
spent a lot of time drawing, coloring, and painting. space-aliens, witches,
mushrooms, ufos, and dragons were common themes in my early drawings. many years later i
started to do mandalas with ink, colored pencil and some watercolor. memories of going
into the city for supplies and scoring a few more pencils still makes me smile.
breathwork, gemstones, yoga, psych*delics, meditating, hiking, and
watching the sun and moon rise almost every day
contributed to my artist vision at this point of my life. ART
