Please visit YouTube and see 20 videos I directed which complement the various genres I frequent.

The Jukebox is a sample of my extensive catalog of three hundred songs, many of which are grouped into interlocking concept albums to-be-released, including Constellations Compromised, Vols. 1-4, and Symphonic Jazz Abstractions, Vols. 1-5, and Western Heart, a western-folk-techno collection. Constellations, Vol. 1 is currently available on CD Baby. For what it's worth, The News and Observer called it "a work of genius, madness, perhaps both." There you go! It's very transgenre, whereas Vol. 2 nails down a dark jazz/r&b world of love and life tales.

Thanks to Parker Emmerson for the lift. Anyone who likes my video directing style is welcome to solicit.
