ABOUT

Musician. Drummer. Guitarist. Voice. You name it. I've Played with The Magpies (early 90s Portland punk), Pranksters (Augusta area classic rock), Mechanical Bird Doodle (Bangor area electron/experiment), The Maxtones (classic rock/jam band), Band of Assholes (dirge rock), SEX TAX (all orginal Portland punk), Rolling With Nixon (Portland original punk/alternative), Stonedriver (drone/ambient/drums), Ennui Deluxe (free jazz), The Unholy Chirp (improvisational jazz-punk), Harold O' Halls Heroes of Ping-Pong (epic guitar jams captured on 4-track), ERGOT (art rock), Stone the Witch (Augusta area alt.country), Scottish Nuns on Acid (trance)and too many nameless garage bands and various recording projects to count.

I've been playing music since the age of 5, and creating, recording and performing music since my late teens, in nearly every genre imaginable. My main focus at this point is creating and recording original music that for the most part could be considered fringe or avante-garde. I'm especially interested in lo-fi (vintage tape) recording of spontaneous compositions/performances.
