Being a sound installation artist, the pleasure is in creating innovative ephemeral works which just exist in the moment the listener hears it. As an early adopter of using a computer in the creation of my work, I characterize the building of computer controlled devices as “instrument building” and the writing of software as the “method of composition”.

After a year of being a selective mute, I apprenticed with filmmaker/science fiction illustrator Ed Emishweller. Later I went on to SUNY Buffalo, Center for Media Studies where I apprenticed and studied with Paul Sharits as well with photographer/filmmaker Hollis Frampton and video artists Woody and Steina Vasulka. Now “retired” after a career as an educator, I return to my roots.
