I'm a native of Austin, Texas, where I lived until 2003, when I moved to Los Angeles. While in Austin I played violin, viola, mandolin and sang harmonies with a lot of different artists including Ray Price, Kelly Willis, Bruce Robison, Charlie Robison, Alejandro Escovedo, Tish Hinojosa, Elana James, Monte Warden, Sara Hickman and Ray Wylie Hubbard. In LA I recorded my first solo album, ANYWAY, produced by Dave Alvin and engineered by Mark Linett. I was lucky enough to co-write three of the songs on my record with Dave (!). Television performance credits include LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, CONAN O'BRIEN, THE GRAND OLD OPRY, AUSTIN CITY LIMITS and SESSIONS ON W. 54TH STREET. In Los Angeles I've played extensively with Dave, as well as Exene Cervenka, Stan Ridgway, Peter Case, Greg Dulli, I See Hawks in L.A., low-fi sugar, Duane Jarvis, Deadrock West, The Hollow Trees, Ben Vaughn, Grant-Lee Phillipps, Quazaar and the Bamboozled, David Serby, Grant Langston, Sarah Stanley and Claire Holley. My most thrilling recording experience out here has been with Brian Wilson on his album GETTING IN OVER MY HEAD. Television recording credits include KING OF THE HILL, CSI: MIAMI and MAD MEN. I am obsessed with string arrangements, esp. cheesy gorgeous spectacular ones from the 'seventies.

As a studio musician I play violin/fiddle, viola, simple cello parts, mandolin and sing harmony and lead vocals. I also arrange string sections and perform all the parts, creating "sections" of sizes ranging from 2-60 tracks/parts; or I can write arrangements for a traditional quartet or section. Drop me a line if you'd like more information on my studio work, pricing, etc., or if you'd like to book me or my band.

Some of the guys I'm lucky enough to play with in MY aforementioned band are Taras Prodaniuk, Ed Tree, Steve Mugalian, Carl Byron and Bryan Head.
