“Tiny Worlds” consists of two contrasting but complementary etudes. The first etude, A Tiny World, All to Ourselves, is designed to strengthen thumb independence while introducing basic syncopation and a cross-string triplet. It is intimate in nature, featuring lengthy sustained notes and heavy repetition. The second etude, Outside, Where the Grass Grows Green, is a spritely tremolando study that cycles through alternate picking patterns. The notated fingering has been carefully selected to provide a strategically varied warm-up or practice session.

As a performer-composer, his album Driftwood was reviewed to high acclaim as "a work of originality and shimmering beauty" (Vivascene) and “one of the most singularly beautiful guitar recitals” (Fanfare Magazine).
