I am really excited about having the chance to help you develop your musical ideas, your mixes, your musicianship, your career and anything else I can help with.
I have written, produced, and mixed over a thousand pieces of music and I have had something I created or helped shape, played somewhere in the world, every week for over 20 years, whether it be on radio, television, cinema, online or anywhere else you can think of. I have managed to do a few gigs along the way as well.
Music is about expressing yourself and creating magic. It is how I connect to other people and the world around me.
I am guessing that if you are on this site, it is probably the same for you. Not only that, but you are doing one of the smartest and most important things you could ever do. You are searching for the knowledge to better yourself and your music.
Let me help you discover new ways of approaching your music. Some things might be technical, if we are discussing your mixes. Some things might be physical, if we are talking about how you are with your instrument. I don't have all the answers, no one does, but I can promise you one thing. I will do my best to share with you as much as I can to help you on your way.

Inspiration to completion
I'm a musician working with an ever-changing array of genres, instruments, and practices, currently based in Chicago. Coming from a background in jazz and sound design, I try to discover how people, places, and technologies can have unique musical interactions, working as an active freelancer and cultural organizer who believes in the power and importance of seeking the unusual.
My influences and collaborators range from free improvisation to sound art to choral music to contemporary classical composition. I've released multiple albums and had my work featured at DOCNYC, the Darmstadt Fereinkurse (Germany), Steppenwolf Theater (Chicago), Trinity College Dublin, Nordic Percussion Festival, Ostrava New Music Days (Czech Republic), and the Banff Centre (Canada). I recently completed a PhD in Music Composition & Technology at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.
I believe in music's capacity for extending our ways of thinking about ourselves and the world, and in my feedback seek to help artists think broadly about what they can do with their unique skills and resources!
