About Me

I'm a cellist and guitarist currently living in Denver, CO.  I perform and record my own original cinematic-neo-classical-post-rock compositions, I perform and record with bands, and I've been giving cello and guitar lessons for about 4 years.  I released my first solo EP, Her Prayers Sound Like Warnings, in the spring of 2017 and will be releasing a full length LP in the spring of 2018.  The band PrettyMouth has been central to my musical life for the last 6 years. I've also performed or recorded with Edison, Sawmill Joe, King Cardinal, The Patient Zeros, Florea, Chad Price, Tyto Alba, Brianna Straut, Adam Hooks, Poor Me, The Dead Orchids, and many more. I also did music for the score of a documentary by Adam Reynolds.
