I am a musician, music teacher, and sound guy living in the Providence, RI area. I consider the study and practice of music to be my life's work, and am thankful for any and all opportunities to work in the field. I hope that this website can be a platform to display some of the projects I have worked on, and as a place to continually publish new work. This website will also serve as a way to find and communicate with me when contact has been lost and to attract new students to my online music lessons.
My musical style is informed by a wide variety of artists and groups, here is a short list of some of my most important influences, in no particular order:
I also enjoy things like woodworking and lutherie, and I research local history and family history. I enjoy the films of David Lynch, and Werner Herzog, and I like TV shows such as Carnivale, Game of Thrones, and The Man in the High Castle. My favorite authors include Marshall McLuhan, Joseph Campbell, John Caldwell Holt, Roy Wagner, and James Burke. I am also very interested in anthropology, and worked for a few years as a field archaeologist in northern New England. I've also spent time working with traumatized youth in state custody, and am very open to working with people with special needs.
