ABOUT

I moved to Cleveland from Cincy a few years ago for grad school. I was pretty involved in the scene back home, and am hoping to get to know the Cleveland scene.

I've played indie, electro, trip-hop, pop, & metal bands. I've toured, recorded multiple albums, and lived the life for several years. At this point I'm pretty open. Part of me wants to do something half dreampop or electro, the other part of me wants to do a straight thrash/metalcore/groove metal band. Totally different directions, but at this point I just miss playing/writing/recording.

I worked as an audio engineer for over 10 years and have recorded/mixed/mastered several albums. I tend to take on the role of producer in a band. That is to say, I don't typically write full songs, but seem to work best when paired with a songwriter helping them to refine their ideas.

I'd eventually like to get to a point where we can record and play out fairly regularly. Open to out of town shows as well from time to time. Obviously that's when Covid passes.

In the meantime, I'm open to throwing ideas around. Txt to reach me (can't respond here): 513. 312.. 9506..

Some groups I've been a part of in the past (all at 'campband'):

smasherman.
prim-musik.
dietaudio.
photoelectric.

EQUIPMENT

A whole bunch.

Guitars, amps, pedals, synths, samplers, yadda yadda.

I'm a bit of a gear junkie. If I don't have something needed, I'm usually willing to get it.
