"It is sometimes difficult to categorize my music and ("Cinematic new age rock") is a term I can live with."

"I enjoy bringing many different influences together in my music. World music, classical rock, and new age are some of the styles I draw from and enjoy weaving into an entertaining and adventurous whole."

"I have always loved the sound of the orchestra. Now I believe I have refined a wonderful blend combining the best elements of the acoustic world, with the electronic world."
