1. What led you to the work you’re making now?

Just a love for synthesizers, drum machines, and non-traditional forms of electronic music.

2. What was your very first gig?

My first solo gig was at the original The Smell location in North Hollywood, late Nineties i believe. I recreated my bedroom and played in my pajamas.
Instrumentation was chord organ, Yamaha SU-10 sampler, vocals.

3. What are you listening to these days?

Let’s Eat Grandma, The new Bixio/Frizzi/Tempera Magnetic Systems compilation Lp, Oiler, Slug, Distorted Pony, Babyland, Drown, Big Black. Anything on The Pre Cert/Dead Cert and Finders Keepers labels. Wilco and Fiona Apple for life

4. How does location influence your approach to a performance?

Well, I’m usually playing in some nondescript empty room, so this will be interesting to see what I come up with.

5. What is next for you?

Hopefully, this will be the genesis of a new solo lp. It’s been 7 years.
