Since 1996, I’ve been writing, performing, and recording as a solo artist and with fun pop project Mailbox, prog rockers Elephants of Scotland, rootsy Groundhog Day, and collaborating with Greg Skillman in Mahout and Neb Crabula.
I’m pretty darn good on piano, keyboards, acoustic guitar, vocals, and drumming. I also have a ukulele, lap harp, three recorders, a melodica, and a whole box filled with random percussion instruments that I can employ when needed … which is more often than you’d think.
Podcast Theme Song Composer
I’ve recently started a side hustle writing and producing theme songs for podcasts. You can hear my compositions on Improvised Weapons, Vermont Favorites, The What the Hell Are You Watching Podcast, and Improv Overdrive.
Musical Improv Accompanist
Perhaps the strangest line of work I have found myself in is as piano accompanist to live musical improv (and sometimes, regular improv). I perform regularly with 2018 VCC March Madness champions She Thicc. I’ve also found myself on stage with other long-form groups and recording with Improv Overdrive. I also co-host a monthly musical improv workshop at Vermont Comedy Club on the fourth Thursday of each month.
Every Sunday at 11am you can hear me on WBTV-LP 99.3FM Burlington hosting Vermont Favorites. I interview Vermont artists and performers about their artistic process and their experiences here in the Green Mountain State. You can also listen via the Vermont Favorites podcast.
