Welcome! and thanks for visiting my website. Here you will find select features and reviews of the performing arts in Santa Barbara. I primarily write on classical music, theater and jazz. A comprehensive body of articles written for The Santa Barbara Independent since 2012 can be found here. Learn about about the KCSB-FM weekly radio program The Classical Now here, and listen to select archived mp3s of the show here. Interviews and other spoken word mp3s can be found under the DirecTalk tab. Read and subscribe to my blog to follow my musings outside the arts. Take a moment to send me a note to let me know you’ve been here!  Thank you!
