Artist Statement

Every time I step on to the stand to perform, I aim to–

-make every beat or note explode with possibilities for new directions, new stories, and go there when possible

-create “events” that audiences can touch, feel , taste and maybe even sculpt to their own liking

-embrace accidents, digressions and paradoxes that people will as refractions of ones that shaped their own lives

-acknowledge the decline of Western civilization while celebrating the multifarious possibilities for sensual pleasure it presents to us

-swing hard and still play sound ideas.
