===Biography===

I am currently playing bass for NonGrata the former guitarist for Torchlight Parade (Cedar Rapids), founder/sole member of Six Seconds Away (my solo studio project) and the former drummer for the bands Nebula Was and The Vainglorious (Iowa City.)

I'm most interested in guitar or drums in new or existing groups, but I am available to fill in as a drummer for temporary/emergency situations, as well.

I am interested in frontman/vocalist duties for new projects - my vocal interests in that case are skewed more towards hardcore punk/spoken-word vocals, but I can do some melodic singing (see songs above.)

I also provide some good demo/entry-level recording for bands/musicians lacking the financial resources or equipment to record their works - see my gear section for more details.
