ABOUT

I'm a long time musician, mixer, producer and songwriter. I've recently relocated from Chicago to LA. My area of focus the last 5 years has been sound design and composition for visual media but I'm shifting back into music (for the sake of music) as a professional goal and looking to collaborate with oddball musicians and writers in unexpected ways. I'm a versatile musician with a good sense of humor and I enjoy weirder things in song and life. I find that I'm happiest making strange musical and cultural observations with likeminded collaborators.

EQUIPMENT

I have a solidly professional assortment of electric guitars, basses, acoustics, a banjo. I also have a well equipped (home) project studio with professional monitoring, microphones and a few analog synths (ARP, Korg). I also run around with a Sound Devices 744t kit to capture real world audio and manipulate it with Reaktor or whatever else I feel like using.
