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.

New recordings up! New summer/fall dates

I finally, finally put some new recordings up! You'll find them to the right in my "music I've made with bands" player, and on my soundcloud page. They're from my show last Friday with Progress at Skinny's Ballroom, and I'm proud that my band performed for one of that great venue's last nights in business. I'll miss you, Skinny's, you were one of the best rooms in town and Austin didn't appreciate you nearly enough!

Some silver lining, though: even though we won't be able to play at Skinny's any more, Progress will be playing at Club Deville every Wednesday in September! That's pretty damn exciting for us, since it's our first residency in Austin as a band, and Deville is one of my favorite spots in town. I've been hanging out there since many years prior to moving here, and Will the sound engineer really knows what he's doing.

Among the other activity for the next few months, I'll be going to New York to spend time with my dear friends from school and Snarky Puppy,  and possibly sitting in with my friend Chris Ward's band on 8/3. Also, some travel time with Nelo to the Northwest and Montana, a date at ACL Live opening for Pat Green, some Elephant Room action with various people, etc. Check it out:
