I play the electric bass, guitar, upright bass, hammered dulcimer, and (most recently) drums. I also write and record music.
Here are some of the projects I have been involved with:
[ 2013 - Present ] I play bass in a post-rock/math-rock band called Dispersion Theory. We sometimes sound like Explosions in the Sky, Minus the Bear, Do Make Say Think, and Don Caballero, if any of those mean anything to you. We're working on mixing our debut album, for which I'm both the bassist and sound engineer. Everyone except our drummer has since moved away from Pittsburgh, so we've become primarily a recording project.
Ride The Bears
[ 2015 - Present ] My housemate Molly and I have a duo in which we cover songs by Joanna Newsom. We call ourselves Joanna Twosome and like to assert that we're Pittsburgh's premiere Joanna Newsom cover band. Nomenclature has become more complex, though, since the awesome Mary-Kate joined as our third member. Molly and I have a series of other cover bands, most notably an Angel Olsen cover duo called the Angel Olsen Twins. I made a website with recordings of one Joanna Twosome show, and we're currently mixing some more formal recordings.

The Book of Right-On
Three Little Babes
[ 2011 ] While I lived in Debrecen, Hungary, three good Hungarian friends and I co-founded Rosszhal ("Badfish" in Hungarian). To my knowledge, we are the only band ever to mix acoustic ska-punk Sublime covers mixed with Hungarian folk music. We even made the front page of the Napló newspaper. You can download (for free) our LP called "Diffúz bizonytalanságérzet."
