Vocalist, Electronic Music.


I play bass, keyboard, pedal steel, and have analogue synthesis and "beat producer" rigs.

Into EDM and electronic music, including experimental music, but also have a hankering for Garage Rock and Shoegaze.

I have co-written, engineered, mixed, and produced several albums. I am interested in many kinds of music.

Guitar is my primary instrument, and I play rock, slide, pedal steel, jazz, and acoustic fingerpicking styles.

I maintain a mobile Producer's Electronica Live Rig centered around Ableton Live with midi control of analogue modular and digital synthesizers.

I have a few combo amps, but my main system is a stereo system built around a Marshall JMP preamp and Mesa boogie 20/20 power amp, feeding 1 x 12" cabinets. I have several electric and acoustic guitars.

I maintain a decent home studio centered around a console and pro converters and outboard signal processors. I can record a whole band or a singer songwriter. My main DAWs are Ableton Live, Logic, and Protools.
