I am a long time guitarist and I have studied with Ken Vandermark learning Braxtons methods of shape and sound, and practice diligently to create the kind sounds I want to hear. As a percussionist I have studied with Tim Daisy focusing on meditational time keeping. 

I have toured most of the U.S. playing improvisational and prepared music, solo, collaboratively with poets, filmmakers, and other visual artists. I also play in the band A.M. Stations. Please visit the calendar page to see upcoming shows and a long list of past shows.
