About Me


Writing songs. Playing shows. Making records.


I play and write music, and love to travel. I've played shows and traveled all over North America and Europe, and am always hungering for the next tour. I also enjoy cooking and gardening, hiking, camping, snowboarding, and studying history. Check out for more info!
