If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.

Music

What began as guitar lessons when I was an adolescent, eventually bloomed into a decade as a songwriter, record producer, touring artist, and studio engineer. I am fortunate to have wonderful experiences working with Grammy winners, hearing my creative work in major films, and building relationships with fans around the world.


Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.

Photography

Right out of high school, I was enrolled in college to major in Fine Arts; however, I was drawn away from constructing visual art by the appeal of creating music. It was only a matter of time before a passion for capturing images caught up with me. There’s something really special about freezing a moment in time, and being able to vividly reference that memory.


The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

Scuba Diving

We live on a beautiful blue planet, with a majestic world right beneath the water’s surface. With each dive, I am not only introduced to extraordinarily brilliant forms of intelligent life; but, I discover a more vivid understanding of this planet and our place upon it.


Man must rise above the Earth – to the top of the atmosphere and beyond – for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.

Flying

There is something quite special about overcoming our planet’s gravity, with a simple understanding of aerodynamics. The conquering of human flight is one of the most influential constituents in the development of modern civilization, and having the ability to experience such a feat is a wonderful feeling.


It is not important to be better than someone else, but to be better than yesterday.

Judo

I have always been intrigued by martial arts, and the physical and mental benefits of studying one. Learning the art of Judo is providing me with insightful perspective about focus, physical strength, and control; not to mention, it’s a lot of fun!
