I'm a Boston-based songwriter who's enamored of lyrical gymnastics and the art of weaving captivating tales with infectious beats and melodies. I play guitar and bass, and I use keyboards for augmenting my tunes. My strongest skill is my ability to pen intelligent, user-friendly lyrics. I'm driven by a strong conviction that melodic, fun dance music can be smart and non-condescending. I'm seeking like-minded folks to create an original group for recording and gigging.

Please note: If I had to point to a single band whose sensibilities have inspired me, it would be Talking Heads. The track you'll find here, "Splitting Hares", doesn't reflect this; I'm writing a screenplay for independent production, and this is a work-in-progress tune that will play during the closing-credits sequence. I've uploaded it here simply because this is where my head is at at this particular moment in time.

Also... I have a great rehearsal and recording space in the heart of the Back Bay.
