Film student and music lover, big fan of Miles, Monk, Ornette, other weirdos with cool ideas.
I was born in Minneapolis in ‘97 and loved music from the get-go. I learned the
drums in the fifth grade and started playing and writing jazz in high school after
falling in love with Coltrane, Monk and Dolphy. I performed in various bands and
combos including a group called the Dakota Combo under the direction of bassist
Adam Linz and my own punk-jazz quartet Halcyon Daze. Nowadays I spend much of
my time in Boston studying filmmaking at Emerson College but I certainly haven’t
forgotten about music. I listen to a lot of Paul Motian, Elvin Jones, and Ronald
Shannon Jackson to remind myself that the drums still have my heart. I also like to
listen to The Lounge Lizards, Keith Jarrett, Albert Ayler and the rest of the world’s
creative weirdos. When I’m not listening to music I spend time watching movies,
reading, hanging out with my dog, and learning about the ocean.
