ABOUT

Hello! I am a sound chaser and visionary, looking forward to working with individuals on something original, and inspiring.

I love to experiment and explore new possibilities. Although I play mostly guitar, I also write on other instruments and would love to find someone I can co-write lyrics with as well.

I'd like to work with someone whom I can bounce ideas off. I've played in metal bands, blues bands, and Latin bands. I've also collaborated with local DJs and mixed acoustic with electronic music with great results. The tracks on this page are just a few samples of my diversity.
