Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

I recently moved to San Francisco and (as of 4/2014) am actively looking to join or start a band. I used to play in a couple metal bands in Madison, WI. Some of my drumming can be found at acridore (including a video of a GC drum off competition that I participated in). I love music that is aggressive and dark, but I am open to a variety of styles. If it sounds great, and it allows me to let out some aggression, then I'll give it a chance!

I consider myself versatile and dedicated to constantly improving. I am not looking to make a career out of music; I'm trying to have fun and make the best music possible, and after that I'll just see what comes of it. The last thing I want is for music to feel like a job. Despite that, I still practice my ass off, and when it's time to prep for a show or a recording, I put in the time that's needed. I expect anyone I play with to have the same level of commitment.
