I have had a peripatetic career encompassing music performance, children's therapy and medical imaging. My web pages contain resources I have developed from working in all those disciplines. I hope you find them useful and interesting.

Manual Therapies and Neuroplasticity

My biggest interest is in developing the scientific evidence base for manual therapies, especially those that treat through music and/or movement. I think these therapies have been grossly underestimated due to the methodological challenges of measuring their impact effectively. I think that better measurement technologies and quantitative methods will be able to document the neuroplastic power of these methods and give them the place they deserve in our culture.

Computing and Imaging

My concern about investigative methods has led me to work on methdological development, and this is my favorite work. I publish on mathematical, computational and statistical aspects of medical imaging and movement analysis. I have also developed some of my work into software packages which you can see some of on my Software page (other stuff is in commercial development). But most of all, I love geeking out on bleeding edge programming and signal processing techniques. Check out my Image Gallery or Publications pages for more.

Improvisation Blog

I once maintained a blog of improvisational music called the Daily Improvisation. It contained hundreds of classical-styled improvisations, some of which had more than 20,000 downloads (mostly from China, for whatever reason). It was eventually overtaken by other interests, but people still go there to hit the jukebox from time to time. You can find it at .
