I create a lot of stuff, but I mostly consider myself a musician and a poet. I am a guitarist/bassist/singer/songwriter for the Missoula, MT based band, Easter Island. I earned a Liberal Studies degree from the University of Montana. Musically, I am primarily influenced by musicians like Tom Waits and bands like Pink Floyd. When it comes to literature, I am incredibly fond of Charles Bukowski and have spent a lot of time with various works in the Western Canon. I like cocaine, Kokanee, and Diet Coke.
