I moved to Boston in ’97 from my hometown of KCMO. I went to college, made a ton of art and music, and met some good folks who are sure to be life-long friends and collaborators. I conspired with some of those same creative, hard-working individuals to build the second generation of independent, non-profit art and performance space Oni Gallery in Chinatown. I was also the official show photographer for Kaiju. Finding the art world somewhat frustrating, I shifted my focus from visual art to music and film. Under the tutelage of Eric Masunaga I engineered at and managed Modulus Studio in Boston for three years. Here I had the opportunity to work on projects for Richard Thompson, Paul Kelly, Throwing Muses, Superchunk, Blank Stare, and filmmakers Andrew Bujalski (Mutual Appreciation, Funny Ha-Ha) Cheryl Eagan-Donovan (All Kindsa Girls – the Real Kids documentary), and Robert Gardner (Dead Birds, Screening Room) among many others. 2006-2009 I was media services director at Documentary Educational Resources and I worked directly with Robert Gardner and Studio7Arts from late-2006 to 2011.
I occasionally record bands at my studio, Blast Zone, in the basement of the Berwick building in beautiful Dudley Square, Roxbury, MA and in Islesboro, ME. I am especially proud of the recordings I’ve done for Jordan Anderson, Leaders, The Conversions, George Lewis Jr (aka Twin Shadow), Geoglyphs and General Interest.
I split my time between Islesboro, Boston, New York and Kansas City playing music, book making, doing video production and post-production work, making photographs, and working on my grandmother’s Buick, a big ol’ lifted 4×4 truck, a Porsche 944, and a 1967 Alfa Romeo GTV.
