Music has been a dominant and driving force for my entire life. I’ve been playing since age 9, and started performing as a bassist at age 16. I still consider myself primarily a bassist, but over time, I've learned lap steel guitar, piano/synths, singing, drums, and electronic drum programming. I also do composing, (home) recording engineering, and producing.
ACTIVE PROJECTS, 2017
INSECT ARK : bass, lap steel, electronics, synths, songwriter
Started as my solo project in late 2011; it's currently my main outlet for writing / performance. I tour frequently, either alone or with drummer/electronics artist Ashley Spungin. Insect Ark is an instrumental experimental/psych/doom band, equally inspired by 60's horror film soundtracks, metal, psych, and traditional classical composers.
