Recent Musical Projects:
O'Duo: Acoustic Duo
Lead guitar, arranger (2017 – present)
The O'Donnell family duo (or O'Duo) features Mike O'Donnell of Sofus on vocals and guitar. Our focus is simple tunes with room for improvisation and a little newgrass flavor.
Lost Axis: Acoustic Duo
Lead guitar, co-composer (October 2015 – January 2017)
Lost Axis is a rock duo featuring Joe Popp on vocals and guitar. The stark instrumental palate of one voice and two guitars, free from over-production, places the focus directly on the music.

Popp Over America: Acoustic Duo
Lead guitar, arranger (February 2015 – October 2015; March 2017)
Popp Over America is an ongoing video project by Joe Popp about people, food, and good times while touring the U.S. as a singer-songwriter on a motorcycle. My involvement in the initial episode was the precursor to Lost Axis, and music from Magnetic Place is now the soundtrack for the pilot.
A Glimpse of Darkness (©1995)
I. "First Glimpse"
A musical reflection on mortality and the cosmos in three brief movements. The first movement is a first awareness of mortality, the second is a death rattle, and the final is post-mortem. The instruments and score were designed and realized in Csound on a NeXTstation.
