I've been in the Austin area my entire life and couldn't feel more fortunate for this. It is the definitive city for music. I've been drumming for nearly 15 years now, and have recently begun the piddling process with guitar, bass, keys, samples, and sequencers. Some of my first projects include Zookeeper, bobbie, and Consumption Hooks.

Nowadays I'm focusing on two projects, We Aim To Try and With An Orange. These groups are at "opposite ends of the rock spectrum" so to speak. We Aim To Try is a two-piece instrumental post-rock outfit consisting of Stephen Edgar and myself. Utilizing guitar loops, keys, samples, beats, and drums/percussion, we build sound collages that rock and woo. With influences ranging from Battles and Russian Circles to Tortoise and Trans Am, We Aim To Try to make beautiful inspirational tunes for your listening pleasure.

With An Orange is best described as ukulele-driven indie rock that speaks in a language of tightly engineered harmonies, unabashed lyrics, and dance-ready beats. This Austin based band consists of Wes McGuffey (Ukulele, Vocals, Guitar), Johnny Jeffers (Bass, Vocals, Guitar), James Power Allen (Guitar), and myself(Drums, Vocals).

My goal as a musician is to remain active in creating and performing the art so long as this body can keep up. I'm eager to meet other likeminded individuals who value music as the soul of all life and the most intimate of the arts. See you out there!
