Ron currently lives in Northern California, where he writes full time. His most recent projects include, "Invasion," a set of hard-hitting symphonic works written primarily for use in action sequences and theatrical trailers, and an original musical mini-series for non-commercial television (title temporarily withheld).
His recent commission for the conservation group, Save Mount Diablo, titled "Sentinel of Time," received its world premiere on November 6th, 2013, at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, California. The work was performed by the Contra Costa Wind Symphony, Duane Carroll, conducting, as stunning, 3D widescreen images of Mt. Diablo, shot by renowned nature photographer, Stephen Joseph, were projected overhead. Click here to watch the 2D version of the entire presentation.

He has also written song cycles, choral works, a children's morality play in a "Kabuki" style, a ballet, and even arranged music for a rock band in a performance with the New York City Symphony. His works have been performed in conservatories and colleges, and at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and Manhattan Center.
Ron's music has appeared in numerous productions on NBC, HBO, Showtime, Oprah Winfrey Network, Spike TV, Versus, The Golf Channel, Discovery Channel, The Food Network, and others.
Steeped in a tradition of classical music and shaped by modern cinematic sensibilities, his music exhibits a deep appreciation for counterpoint and idea manipulation. His goal in any work is to create a functional piece of music that is, on its surface, appealing and accessible, but on a deeper level, able to interest the more involved listener. To him, this model is the very essence of everything found in nature.
