ABOUT

I am a 28 year old musician from Chicago looking for serious projects and gig opportunities.

I am well studied in rock, country, blues and pop. I have been hired to play for theaters, churches, as well as performed with bands throughout Chicagoland and surrounding areas (House of Blues, Metro, SXSW, etc.). I am experienced in sight reading, improvising, recording and songwriting. I have background vocal capabilities and can contribute keyboard when needed.

I have an Arts Management degree from Columbia College so I always try to bring an entrepreneurial spirit to projects I am a part of.

Please check out this short video of a couple past performances I did.
