Organic Piano


Life experiences are living rhythms that affect who we are inside and how we decide to project ourselves on the outside.  My music is a reflection of these rhythms.  Living by the ocean has been a major impetus for my recent collection of melodies. 

Even more powerful, has been connecting with a magical partner and transforming these life events into music.  These transformations create my concept of organic spontaneously composed from audiography of thoughts.

A little bit about me:

I earned my Ph.D. in experimental psychology at Washington State University and specialize in reading comprehension and memory.  I teach psychology and online learning strategy courses for the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online.  My passion for playing piano has grown considerably over the years.  The combination of good food and company, along with ample time for exercise and deeper reflection, helps to keep me balanced.
