I'd describe myself as a multimedia artist from Chicago who now lives in Los Angeles.
From mediums like: animation, graphic design, songwriting, video editing, directing and live lighting design, I try to do a bit of everything that inspires me. Along with these artistic passions I have a foundational health practice rooted in vinyasa style yoga and have taught professionally for seven years.

   I'm Father of one beautiful girl and married to the Los Angeles Tattoo Artist "Opal Tattoo" my flower whisperer Zara. (www.opaltattooink.com) We both graduated from Columbia College Chicago with Bachelors degrees and fled the windy city for warmer skies in sunny California.

​   In addition to the creation and production side of music I have also been a part of a
number of different performance acts both original music and corporate cover bands.
While I lead with my skills as passionate drummer I have also played and performed on voice, piano, guitar, bass, and trumpet.

​"Story telling art can take place in a multitude of mediums and it's because of that, that
I feel compelled to explore all methods to further expand my expressive abilities"
