I am a percussionist whose work encompasses Americana and avant-garde jazz.
I combine a jazz improvisation background with emotionally intense acting techniques and my profoundly synesthetic perception of motion/space/sound/color.
I collaborate with musicians and other creatives to devise extremely intentional performances in which nothing is left unconsidered. By being actively mindful of what’s actually happening in the room for the other performers and audience, I keep the the lived emotional experience of the audience my foremost priority to creative consistently moving, powerful performances that leave a lasting impact on all involved.

I've played Amedia cymbals for years, and I'm very excited to be on their artist roster. Their cymbals are full of character, color, grit and individuality. Right now, I'm especially excited about their Old School, Fusion, and Aura lines.
