My name is Mike. My user name is pretty descriptive: I live in Virginia, and the second part is both my profession and usual leisure activity.

My degrees are in mathematics and information systems, but I began piano lessons at 7 and continued until I reached college.

A few years ago, I began to experiment with composition, first with keyboard works and then on to other instruments and ensembles. This project has proven to be an invaluable source in the learning process, and it's exciting to become a part of the community.
