I am best known as the creator of the TogaMan GuitarViol - an exotic bowed guitar like instrument heard on Film/TV/Game soundtracks by many respected film composers. (300, Watchmen, Game of thrones, The Black Swan, Revenge, True Blood, Noah, Hell on Wheels are but just a few projects you hear my instruments on - those familiar with the video game "Borderlands" - that was me rocking the GuitarViol). I am also a composer with a film library album "GuitarViol" on Lakeshore Records. Currently working on a documentary about the little known and fascinating history of the bowed guitar through the centuries - the team for this is in both in LA and London.
Unique traits: Problem solver with a fertile imagination and a deliberate visual thinking /engineering process. I also have strong writing skills with a penchant for poetry. I am quite passionate and enjoy working with other like minded creatives in all manner of physical, virtual, visual, and sonic media.
