I am a musician (singer/songwriter, guitar, keys, bass, drums, vocals, computers, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, percussion, etc.) who has played many venues and festivals in the Minneapolis, MN area and abroad. 

Throughout my career, I have performed mostly solo - but also with duos and full bands - at venues like First Avenue, the 7th Street Entry, the Cabooze, the Fine Line, and huge events, such as the Minneapolis Pride Festival. I have shared the stage with the likes of the Village People, Everclear, Toki Wright, Expose', CeCe Peniston, R. Stevie Moore, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, the Fouronthefloor and many, many others.  

I have been playing music since I was 9. I've been performing live since I was 10. In addition to live performances, I have recorded several solo albums. On my records, I play all the instruments and perform all vocals.


I have recorded with other bands, as a member of a group, or as a session player - on most instruments I play - with artists of many genres, from rap to punk, rock and roll, funk, alternative, soul, jazz, country, EDM and pop. 

I am currently finishing up a series of solo albums. 

I am also a composer for television commercials and films, and have had done work for companies such as Target, Cadillac, Payless, Subaru and many others.

I hope you enjoy the music. After all, it's all I am.
