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.

Last month of 2011, and we got some rain

We finally got some rain!  Real rain!  It was a pretty drizzly day but I'm very happy for it, we needed it so badly.  Thank you, clouds.

2011 has evaporated quickly, which is an unsettling shock, but overall it's been very busy, productive, and enjoyable.  I've gotten to do some extremely fulfilling things with Nelo, developed my exciting new band (Progress), written a ton of music, worked on studio projects by some really cool artists, and played a heap of shows.  I'm grateful to all my friends, colleagues, and everyone else who makes it possible for me to keep going.

Keep an eye out for a new Nelo single in January, and a bunch of new Progress shows.  If all goes according to plan, we'll have a real recording out in the next few months.  In the meantime, I have a big variety of shows coming up.
