Guitarist, Composer, Teacher , and Improviser

Primary Groups

Iris lune

Alternative-Indie Electronic group based in Brooklyn, New York. My roles in this group include playing guitar, playing synths, co-leading, co-writing, and co-producing alongside Ella Joy Meir (Vocals, Keys and Songwriting), Aaron Liao (Bass and Moog), and Angelo Spampinato (Drums, and Electronics) .

Childish Japes

Childish Japes is equal parts collective, band, and art project—committed to fearless musical exploration and a blurring of genre lines. The composing is heavily collaborative and equally inspired by each of the three members: Asher Kurtz, Jed Lingat, and JP Bouvet.

Freelance work and past Projects

Here, you’ll find recordings of my work as a soloist, composer, and arranger, both in past projects, and as a sideman.
