ABOUT

I'm not remotely claiming I'm big in Japan or anything, but I've been lucky enough that every serious project I have been a part of has gone farther than the last. I've played just about every NYC small venue worth a damn, and have gone so far as to play SXSW as a solo artist and with a band, play a CMJ showcase, and my last project opened for Slash at Hammerstein.

For the last few years I've just been playing with a revolving door of musicians and struggling to just get to a point where playing live wouldn't be an embarrassment.

I'm looking to do more, particularly once Covid life is a thing of the past. Live stream, filming for web, etc. are all on the table for now, but I'm open to input, suggestions, and brainstorming.
