Music has been a major focus in my life and I can’t imagine living without it. I graduated from The Southwest Guitar Conservatory in San Antonio, TX, and received a Professional Music degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I’ve been playing guitar and singing in bands since I was twelve.
As a founding member of the ground-breaking Boston band Think Tree I toured Europe twice, won many awards, opened for Nine Inch Nails and was featured on the Guitar Hero and Rock Band video games. My current bands are Count Zero (who toured North America with the Dresden Dolls) and Will-r. I also improvise music with some very talented players quite often. My latest release is “Tripping on Wires,” an experimental collage project which accompanies a series of videos that were featured at The Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe, NM, in June 2018.
