In 1995-1996, I was a senior at Gustavus Adolphus College, majoring in music with honors work in music history and literature. My senior thesis was on John Coltrane. The main purpose of this website is to make that thesis available to the world. The site is also a resource for Coltrane fans and those who are interested in learning more about his music.

These days I make a living as a freelance web consultant, designer and developer, operating under the name Room 34 Creative Services. I designed this website using my Room 34 Baseline WordPress theme as a starting point. This theme is built to HTML 5 standards and relies extensively on the Blueprint CSS framework. The site runs on WordPress, an open source blogging and CMS web application.
