I write, sleep, and am often riding my bike in Brooklyn. I spent the first 18 years of 33 in Panama City, FL, and the rest in Nashville and Atlanta. There was a hazy two month stint in Malibu too.
From '96 - '05, I wrote music and toured in punk, hardcore, and Dischord-indebted instrumental bands. Since then I've released two quiet instrumental records and one surf music collection. Sometimes I DJ.
Since 2009, my work has been featured in The Atlantic, New York Observer, Interview, Paste, Nashville Scene, MAGNET, Consequence of Sound, Relevant and elsewhere. Occasionally I check facts at Vogue.
