Writer Member - ASCAP/Publisher Member ASCAP - Earthweb Music Company.

Mannes College of Music - Mastered in Composition - 1973 Clinician for Bob Moog.......ah, I remember it well! The Jurrasic period of the Sythesis Age.

I've been Musical Director for Kiss Me Kate one too many times.........and Marat Sade not nearly enough!!

I spent 10 years working at Chelsea Music in NYC with the late, beloved Mathilde Pincus and dear friend Evan Morris, doing music preparation for the pit orchestras on Broadway and for films. I learned more about orchestration here than I did in all my previous years of study! (Courtesy of great orchestrators like Jack Hayes, Jonathan Tunick, Michael Starobin, Michael Abene and many others).

I was lucky enough to be best friends with John Morris' son, Evan, which brought with it the invaluable gift of John's mentoring. I would be nowhere without his encouragement and generosity.

1986 - I went completely independent and began composing for TV and Films full time. I've managed to build quite a respectable MIDI studio in my home and have acquired all of the best orchestral samples to be had. (See Studio Specs Section).

1998 - I drag myself (and my family) into the 21st Century and launch my own web page and decide it's time to indulge in some shameless self-promotion (all in the name of my daughters' college tuition money). (See Direct Deposit - Kubie - Bank of New York).

For the past 9 years I have been working on a collaborative basis with renowned children's author, Jean Craighead George. Our work is based upon her writings and works to date include a children's environmental musical entitled One Day In the Woods (HarperCollins), and One Day In the Tropical Rain Forest (not released yet) which is an audio production that features Jean reading her book about a young Yanonami boy's struggle with progress to the listener and my score enhancing the experience like nothing you've ever heard before.

Most recently, Jean George and I are working together on a treatment for her Newbery Medal book, Julie of the Wolves. This incredible classic tells the story of a lost 12 year old Eskimo girl who finds herself among the wolves of the tundra and amidst the struggles of young womanhood.
