laying down the Aloha.

Ableton when it needs to be grand; just me and my ukulele when it needs to be intimate. I love the groove, warm breezes, and just letting Music go where it wants to.

Sometimes I make my own instruments too.



Musician, adventurer, photographer, and learning designer/technolgist from the Philadelphia suburbs. I moonlight as an adjunct professor. If that doesn't cover enough ground, I also pretend that I know what I'm doing as a parent and husband.

stuff I play: Electric and acoustic guitar (6, 7, 8 and 12 string), cigar box guitars, diddley bows, canjos, bass, piano, lap steel, resonator, tenor banjo, ukulele, kalimba, Zendrum, Hapi drum, djembe, Midi Fighters, Push, and anything that I can make a sound with (and not necessarily in that order).

stuff I make: Kalimbas, guitars with cigar boxes and license plates, Legos, whatever odds & ends I need, and a colossal mess (which I clean up).
