Welcome to my website.

I live in Melbourne, Australia.

Articles of mine regularly appear in the pages of The American Conservative (where I'm a Contributing Editor), The New Criterion, Chronicles Magazine, Modern Age, Taki's Magazine, National Observer (Australia), Oriens (Australia), Annals Australasia, and other periodicals.

My music is published by Wirripang, Wollongong, New South Wales. Three compositions by me are now on a CD from this firm, called Simply Songs (2004).

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, of Wilmington (Delaware), released in early 2008 my book A Student's Guide to Music History.

A short choral work of mine, O Salutaris Hostia, received its première on May 29, 2005, in San Francisco, performed by the Schola Cantorum of the National Shrine of St Francis of Assisi. On the following August 21, Tantum Ergo (a companion piece to O Salutaris Hostia) received its première, with the St Mary's Singers, in Sydney's St Mary's Cathedral.

The idea is that, eventually, most of my printed articles from 1990 onwards (1990 was the year I first grew an authorial brain) will be available on this site. Meanwhile, stand by for further exciting developments. Do not, however, hold your breath whilst doing so!

“A poem is never finished, it is only abandoned.”
