About Me

CURRENT MISSION

breakfast.

ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, traveled and lived all around the USA as a youth, finished out school back up in Alaska. Moved to NYC for music and new energies. Now a touring/local drummer and freelance writer, I've made countless jaunts across the country and back. Time for something new and daring, preferably off this continent.

I like music, books, and people. Favorite peanut butter is Skippy.

PHILOSOPHY

Pack light. Be radiant.
