I'm a musician and I work at a record store in Portland called Green Noise Records, where I have worked for last 6 and a half years. I live in an awesome 2 1/2 bedroom home in inner southeast Portland with a beautiful backyard and basement to create music and art in right across the street from the lovely Lone Fir Cemetary. I play drums, guitar, bass, and a little bit of keyboard/piano and own a small record label and have done extensive touring. I am a vegan-leaning vegetarian and have been for the last 13 years (I dork out for pizza!, my Achilles heel). I adore animals and I value direct, open, honest communication, good conversation, dry wit, sarcasm, compassion, empathy, and good hospitality and I always clean up after myself and pitch in on chores.

I have spent half my life on the east coast and half on the west. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., then 7 years in Seattle, 6 months in San Diego, and most recently 8 years in Portland. I am traveling to S.F. And L.A. To visit and will be moving to California before years end to continue studying film scoring, performing, recording, and of course enjoy the great food, weather, and a new place. My all time top five favorite bands are Melvins, The Jesus Lizard, the Kinks, Soundgarden, and Black Flag. Some other favorites include Mark Lanegan, Isobel Campbell, Mazzy Star, the Seeds, Nick Cave, The Jam, Lee Fields, Dirty Three, Mirah, Howlin' Rain, Napalm Death, Bob Dylan, Metz, Battles, Melt Banana, Jimi Hendrix, Gang of Four, Led Zep, L7, Hank Williams, James Brown, Unsane, Zola Jesus, Rose Windows, Meat Puppets, Iggy Pop, Nina Simone, Ornette Coleman, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Tweakbird, and Marnie Stern. I love Psychedelic rock, soul, punk, post-punk, metal, old folk and blues and all genres and sub-genres contained there-in. I also love film. Some favorites include: Dead Man, Audrey Hepburn films, Before Sunset, My Own Private Idaho, Drugstore Cowboy, Beginners, Midnight Cowboy, and especially the films of Jim Jarmusch, Richard Linklater, and Almodovar. I love going to shows, long walks, exploring new cities and new parts of my own town, meeting new people, playing tennis, skateboarding badly, looking at beautiful art/art history, good beer, cinema, and the Pacific Ocean.
