I am a percussionist, drummer, and composer based in Minneapolis. My music is a composite of years of playing in rock bands, and a study of classical percussion. By placing these styles in context with one another, the result is long form chamber music that is somehow familiar but stretches into the world experimental texture. Originally from the North woods of Minnesota, I draw inspiration from the people and landscapes of this state.
I have been lucky to receive commissions from the American Composers Forum, the Cedar Cultural Center, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Over the last few years my music for percussion ensemble has been performed by other groups throughout the United States and as far as Mexico City.
