For my most recent work, see...


Consider subscribing to my Patreon! I post there regularly and it's really the hub of my ongoing creative work. Posts include finished and in-progress work, discussions of what I'm listening to, and prompts and jam sessions for followers to make sound. Tiers start at $2/month, and all tiers receive the same benefits (sliding scale).

>>> Want to try before you buy? A few times a year I make a free, public post summarizing what I've worked on the last few months, like this Fall'22 performance video and writen reflection. Plus, when you sign up you won't be charged until the next 1st day (ex: sign up September 1 -> pay October 1), so there's a built-in trial period. Come check it out!


Also check out my Bandcamp, where I release new music semi-regularly and free streams are possible.

Thanks for listening!
