I have an impressive musical resume. BFA Marylhurst U. composition/musicology. I studied under Sister Magdalen Fautch who assisted Bernard Herrmann on all of the Alfred Hitchcock movie soundscores. I was a founding member of Fall From Grace circa 1990-2000. We had a #1 single in the European free radio charts above Metallica's Enter Sandman for 2 weeks. (Metallica was at number one for almost 2 years prior) I have worked with and recorded with Deen Castronovo (Ozzy, Journey, Revolution Saints, Frank Zappa, GZR etc.) Kelly Nobles (Rail), Roger Fisher (Heart) , Lynn Sorensen (Bad Co.) Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam) Dane Petersen (Bloodbath) etc. I have tour experience along with recording and engineering.

This is excerpts from a piece I wrote for Turner Classic Movies. This was supposed to be an example of how new soundscores were going to be written for the "New" colorization of old b&w movies with new modern scores. The project tanked. Well at least I made it to their website.

Song 2. Dane Petersen (A.K.A. underrated lyricist. Dane was ahead of his time. This song is about the global blanket of satellites that will come back to us one way or another. Check out the website "stuff in space". Mind you, when Dane wrote this, there wasn't an internet yet.
