Short Biography

   I have worked as a violinist, composer, stained glass artist, and inventor. I was trained as a composer and violinist at the North Carolina School of the Arts where I studied violin with Erick Friedman and composition with Jack Jarrett and Robert Ward. Further studies were with Ulysses S. Kay and Charles Knox. I also studied science and philosophy through the University of Science and Philosophy. During the late 70s and early 80s, I composed and performed music for concerts, TV, theater, and film. For almost thirty years I designed and built stained glass windows for homes and churches. Recently, I worked for Vubotics, inc. as an inventor developing a new method for displaying text on a computer controlled electronic screen. I am now trying to market several inventions including a video training method, a new food processor design, a design for low cost housing for third world countries, and a new computer user interface. However, my greatest challenge is to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease from which I have suffered for nearly ten years.
