Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a guitarist, songwriter, sometimes singer and quasi multi-instrumentalist (keyboard & synth, drums). I am most interested in writing and recording new music, but also I enjoy performing covers.

My tastes are eclectic. I listen and play everything from pop and rock to country, folk and blues, though my primary influences are post-punk and alternative bands like The Cure, The Smiths, and Joy Division.

In my other life, I teach high school.
