I play drums and percussion, and write music. Lately I've been playing with Good for Cows, Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog, Secret Chiefs 3, Tim Berne's Los Totopos, the Mary Halvorson Trio and Quintet, Ben Goldberg Quintet, Xiu Xiu, and Terry Riley as well as my solo drums/vibraphone/electronics project Congs for Brums and my quartet These Arches (with Mary Halvorson, Tony Malaby and Andrea Parkins). I study Haitian Vodou drumming with John Amira, Daniel Brevil and Markus Schwartz.
