I have written professionally in most of the areas of commercial music including songwriting, setting music to lyrics, arranging, demo and master recording (both electronic and in studios with live musicians and singers), theater, television, records, radio and the web. I have also prepared copyright litigation musical material for attorneys and served as expert witness at the federal court level.
