I have a creative playing style, especially known for an erratic improvisational performance and a heavy right foot. I've been the progenitor of numerous groups including the Emo-punk innovators Junction, the infamous Delta 72, and Dischord Record's, Capitol City Dusters.

I've recorded and or performed with many Washington DC area musicians and bands of varying genres. Just to name a few: the The Love Load, DC Improvisers Collective, Sean McArdle, Joe Lally and more.
