"Lush, brimming guitar textures and abstract, spiritual lyrics... Melodic, melancholic and versatile."

I taught myself to play guitar with an unlikely combination of Neil Young and Type O Negative songs.

I'm a prolific composer with a reputation for being easy to work with. I've written songs that range from folk styles to metal and I like an “I’ll try anything” approach to music. Though specializing in a unique brand of "progressive, psychedelic goth rock,” I run a gamut of styles.
