My latest release as a songwriter & producer is Daylight.
Until recently, most of my public output has been music-related. As a songwriter, mult-instrumentalist, producer and engineer, I’ve contributed to over 1,300 musical projects. See my search results on Discogs.
I started playing drums at the age of twelve. Over time I picked up other instruments and learned to record and mix my own songs on cassette and reel-to-reel. I was quick to adopt digital recording, and beginning in the late 1990’s, I released several solo albums, band projects and productions.
These days, I’m very selective about the projects I take on, focusing on collaborations where I have a creative stake in the work.
Below is more information regarding my work in music.
I released my first solo album as a songwriter in 1999. A majority of my catalog can be found on Bandcamp and a subset is on Spotify and Apple Music.
I’ve also been a recording and performing member of a few bands over the years on drums, guitar, bass, keys and vocals.

I mastered over 1,300 music projects between 2008-2020 including artists such as Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, J. Tillman (Father John Misty) & Cold War Kids. A handful of these projects were certified gold, and some were nominated for Grammys and Oscars.
In 2020, I decided to take a hiatus from mastering in order to work on creative projects in music and writing.
In addition to my mastering work, I’ve had the chance to produce, engineer and mix a lot of records. Here’s a handful you might have heard.
