I've composed and produced 5 albums in the THUS project since 2007. The mission was to produce satisfying but inventive rock music in the tradition of great artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Yes , and Paul Simon. Melodies instead of hooks. Composition instead of power chords. Reason over rhyme. These ideals comprised the compositional modus operandi over the years, producing - I think - mostly successful results. 

The streaming age has devalued music and made it feel disposable. But I'm a believer that everything has not been done, it's not about the instrument or tools you make music with, and that complexity is not the same a greatness.

The main ingredient in good music is good music.

I'll be honoring Chris Cornell in his home town at a private event with a couple other amazing bands on October 6. Admission is $40 and includes open bar, swag bag, and the concert! The concert is warming Seattle up for the unveiling of a bronze statue of the late singer at the Museum of Pop Culture near the Space Needle. Hope to see you there! More details at the Facebook event page.

THUS I, II...& IV 

Seattle life is finally feeling settled. I always wanted to live here and the weather isn’t the horror show people say it is. Compared to where I come from anyway. I’m polishing up THUS I & II to warm up before finishing IV. Angel, Go Away, and Pyrodise are already souped up, so feel free to snag those newly sweetened versions. Since I’m in a city full of musicians, I’m looking into doing this for real- 11 years solo is more than enough. Though it’s been a long tough break from music the last 2 years, it’s…

Site Conversion 

Hey hey-

All things Thus related are now located at

Going forward, this site will serve as a one stop shop for all of my projects and portfolio content - musical and otherwise. I’m currently neck deep in a project titled ASH: A Fan Fiction Web Comic, a direct prequel to the 1979 film ‘ALIEN’, so stay tuned for that content, as well as my illustration and sculpture portfolio.

Another Idea I’ve been kicking around is creating pages for my artistic family members - sister Katy, Mom…

LISTEN TO THUS III FREE and donate if you wish - the most epic album to date - these songs are odes to solitude, connection, and human identity while we search for intelligent life, explore artificial intelligence, and navigate time and space.

I’ve poured 5 1/2 years into this record and while I could probably work another 5 years on it, it’s poignant here and now. So happy holidays!

Make your present the future-

Full steam ahead 

The final sessions of THUS III are happening through the end of 2017! With relocation and personal events behind me, there's nothing to hold back the final couple songs. It's been a very long road - 5 1/2 years by the time the album will drop, but it will ben worth it as the THUS III sessions also yielded THUS IV. TIII is very much a concept album but don't let that scare you - its very tuneful and the focus is always on making each song an emotional experience. THUS III is everything you want - 50% classic…

Chris Cornell 

1 week since Chris departed. Whatever the sad circumstances of his passing, he left his fans in a fortunate state: we still have the music. Although a handful of gifts, like his blaring tenor, adept musical capacity, and perseverance, comprised a worthy legacy, Chris's lyrics are what I enjoyed most.  

"...Forget how soon you become a fool for words when I speak...",  

"...I only love you when I'm down but one thing for you to keep in mind is I'm down all the time" 

"...every hurtful thing you ever…
