About Me


Live through Music


I'm very passionate about sound and music. I am an 'intermittzant du spectacle' as a sound engineer and musician.    I play guitar, percussion, and a few other instruments. I play in an audio-visual improvisation project, but currently play a lot of acoustic guitar, and am developing a cover band for street music and bar gigs.
     I also enjoy games, debating about life, traveling, and all of the crazy things that can happen to you in everyday life. I sometimes leave awkward pauses before answering a question because I overthink the simplest things.   I take absurdity seriously.For a quick glipse of improv click here:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do a lot of Hosting, and Surfed in Dublin and through Spain. My band also played at two local CS events, which was a lot of fun!
