About Me

Welcome!

I'm a multi-instrumentalist, folk musician, and music teacher located in upstate South Carolina. I'll attempt to play anything with strings and have a love of Appalachian music traditions. Here you'll find information about my music, lessons, and who/where/when I'm playing in the near future. If you see anything you're interested in, drop me a line. I'm always happy to talk music.

Currently you can catch me playing bass with The Wild Pines and The New Time Travelers.
