ABOUT

I am a multi-instrumentalist that currently plays guitar for the Cincinnati Synth-Rock band Founding Fathers and keyboards for Why So Serious, a cover band in the Dayton, Ohio area. I was a guitarist/composer for an original progressive/math-rock band Mental Floss for 12 years. I played the Chapman stick for a Djent metal band Catalyst. I have also played multiple shows with various different Zappa alumni, such as Ike Willis, Napoleon Murphy Brock, and Don Preston.
