ABOUT

Tracks above: One quick and dirty recording of a song I just wrote; and the demo track for a band I was in in London, I'm on the lead guitars.

Back in DC after a year traveling abroad. Been awhile since I was last in a band, most recently playing in 2015-16 for a proto-punk outfit on the London, UK scene. Looking to gather with some musicians and play. UPDATE: Originally joined Bandmix and wrote this riiiight before COVID broke out! It's a year on, and I'm only now starting to look at this page again - but I hope there are those of you out there looking for ways to collaborate as the mess goes on. Music heals.

I'm not picky at all on genre, I tend to adapt to the musicians around me and what they need. In past ventures, I've played everything from punk to psych, from blues to country, from funk to folk and singer-songwriter, and all points in between. I have many varied influences, having grown up musically in places as disparate as Italy and Texas. Looking to get back into it after a long hiatus due to travels. Have a number of songs that could be turned into something, and lyrics as well.
