Sometimes I make Music


I've been lucky to make music with my friends all over the North East since first picking up a guitar as a clueless teenager. Writing and recording original music and performing  with people I care about is what makes me happiest; I'm thrilled to share my music with you. 

I'm currently in the middle of a project called Lunar Songs. I'm writing and recording one song a month and sending them to a list of supporters and collaborators along with stories about my songwriting process and inspirations. It's been an incredible journey. Sign up above to be a part of it.

I'm currently playing shows around the greater Washington DC area.
Come see me at a show or contact me (email: for booking information!

For the past two years I've experimented with Gamification in the classroom,
which means I incorporate 'video game' principles into my daily lessons.
I've learned so much, and I hope to sh
are my findings, lessons, and strategies with you here soon.
