ABOUT

Hobbyist multi-instrumentalist (drums, bass, guitar, keys, vocals) and tracking/mixing engineer - currently playing in two bands but open to jam sessions and composition/recording side-projects. Check out my mashup for some samples of things I've worked on over the last 5ish years. I did all the bass, drums, keyboards, some of the guitars and vocals, and all of the mixing/engineering. Hit me up if you like what you hear and would like to work on some stuff.
