who am i?

I am a guitarist, composer, and improviser based out of Chicago and New York. I like to play music that focuses on exploring sound through free jazz, collaborative improvisation, and experimental music.

I am involved with many, ever-changing projects that, as of late, have me working with cello and electronics. I also have a few long-term recurringĀ  projects:

Errata, an improvising trio that experiments with live synthesis (myself – guitar, Eli Namay – double bass, and Bill Harris – drum set) Future release planned with Gilded Records and Amalgam Music.

je’raf, a post-progressive acid jazz/hip hop group (Brianna Tong -vocals, P.T. Bell -vocals, Wills McKenna – tenor sax, David Fletcher – trombone, myself -guitar, Eli Namay – bass guitar, Bill Harris – drum set);
