Fall in Rancho San Antonio - my favorite jogging grounds

First Career Years Album

Below are recordings of my first career compositions (incomplete as of 3/6/2005).

My first career, a few years at HP and a few years at BioDiscovery were life changing. Careerwise, it was nothing to write home about. But as a person, I grew tremendously. My compositions were so so - not too shabby, but not too great partly because when I was at Silicon Valley, I didn't have a piano with me... I'll try to update this page as more songs come back to me.

In the mean time, thank you for visiting. And please ... enjoy.

Autumn Wisp [mp3] Composed late 1990's. Recorded 3/13/2005. Weird,weird recording. I spent 1 1/2 hour recording - one thing or another keep on messing up ... until a final two takes - which transposed the recording up 1/2 step. Then record got jumbled with another... this is the best I can do. I'm not going to waste any more time on this. If this is this piece is going to sound like. So be it.
