Welcome to my home on the internet

I live in New York City and I play, write, arrange, and produce music for myself and lots of other people. I spend quite a bit of time in Austin, Texas, and travel around the country with various groups. I've contributed performances, compositions, and arrangements to recordings by bands like Snarky Puppy, Okkervil River, Bill Laurance, Nelo, and many more. My band is Progger.

Austin is beautiful, especially when it's not a hundred and five out

The weather has started cooling off, and I've been enjoying this beautiful city that's been my home for the last two years.  The trail from Barton Creek to Town Lake, the Lamar footbridge over the Colorado River leading right to downtown, and the pervasive sense that the people who live here WANT to live here make me very happy to be in Austin.  The community here is only getting stronger, and I'm glad to be a part of it.

Progress is playing at the end of the month, and we've got a grip of new music that we'll use to lay waste to the Elephant Room.  Nelo's got a string of new dates, as well, plus we're gearing up for a humongous nationwide tour in the spring.  Here are all my public gigs coming up.
