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.

Very elephanty

This has been a seriously eventful summer so far. I'm fortunate to be participating in some really cool projects with some great people! I've been getting to play a ton of jazz lately, which is very refreshing, but sadly Progress has had to postpone our recording session because of some unfortunate family stuff in the band. Everyone's OK, though, and we'll get it done soon enough. In the meantime, we're hitting the woodshed, putting together some sweet jams for you, and hitting at Skinny's Ballroom toward the end of the month!

This is going to be a very Elephant Room-ful couple of months. Some big band action and some exciting combo sets with Dave Sierra, Red Young (one of the most brilliant jazz organists I've ever heard), and trombone phenom Paul Deemer. Nelo's also doing some really cool in-town shows soon, including one with the legendary Pat Green at ACL Live (Moody Theater, in the W Hotel, downtown).
