I have been building, inventing, and playing new kinds of musical instruments and sound devices for over 40 years. During that time I have worked in jazz and new musical ensembles mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I invented the waterphone in the late sixties and took a patent out on it in the 1975. I make my living by marketing my instruments and sound devices through my web site at waterphone.com. I also paint and do giclee prints of landscapes, mandalas and abstractions. I have one daughter, an author and one granddaughter. I travel to the San Francisco Bay Area about once per year to see them and to do some recording and performance work.
