about

I'm a storyteller. I tell stories with percussion. I use different
sounds that will bring up memories, so the stories I tell, are
your own stories. The stories you live.

Remember the sound of your grandmother's clock, the wind
outside your window, or the busy street where you grew up?
These are the type of sound stories I tell. I use sound to
connect you to memories.

The stories told here come from my experience as a musician and performer over the past year. Some were told to me by people at my performances. Some are my reactions to my surroundings, especially visual art I came into contact with. Still others are about my life. I am a story teller.

There is a Bonus 30 minute narration track telling the story of 'Stories We Tell Ourselves.'

Keep music alive. Support musicians and the music they make.

All proceeds from this recording go into making more music. Thank you!
