I am an Atlanta guitarist, composer, and performer whose work navigates all the elements of my musical life so far: rock energy, classical motivic development and instrumental technique, folk tradition, sound design, and jazz improvisation. My continued quest is to discover common musical threads and synthesize them into my own contemporary sound.
I currently perform on solo guitar, with drums-and-guitar duo Helton and Bragg, ethno-funk-jazz ensemble the Sataraš Quartet, and avant-garde electronic duo Åndedyr. See the Current Projects section for links.
Past collaborations include projects with Art on the Atlanta Beltline, Core Dance, Crossover Movements Arts, Fourth Ward Afro Klezmer Ensemble, Flux Projects, Georgia Perimeter College, and other arts organizations in the Southeast United States.
I come from an artistic family: My grandfather was an art director who designed the famous Delta Airlines widget, and my father a commercial illustrator who among other things created the Atlanta Pop Festival posters of 1969 and 1970. Although I went to the musical dark side, I have a great appreciation for the visual arts and enjoy working on layouts for print media, album covers, and web pages.
