Looking for collaborators and songwriting partners.
I am a self-taught guitarist and music theorist. I can read music but not well enough to sight-read (for me, notation functions like an advanced kind of tablature). I’ve played guitar and bass for various bands and artists (mostly in the DC area) of various genres, including; rock, soul, jazz, pop, blues, metal, folk, and hip-hop.
When not playing with bands, I perform as a one-man-band with my guitar and loop pedal. For a brief time, I made a living as a full-time busker and was featured in Washingtonian Magazine’s June 2017 “Best Of” issue.
