Raised in Washington DC, much of his early musical education came surrounded by thousands of revelers at Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, Phish, Rusted Root and myriad other concerts. In the presence of so many fine musicians, it was little surprise when the performance bug bit him hard at the age of 12. Beginning a simultaneous study of guitar, drums and flute at 12, he jammed the classics with friends until age 14, when he wrote his first song, about the Adventure of Love. Quickly realizing that a 4-track was a necessity, he raised money by collecting donations from his classmates in 8th grade and bought a Tascam 03. After recording his first song, he then sold tapes to his classmates, and donated half the proceeds to his 8th grade class theme-park trip.

Many years and basement recordings later, he entered Bard College, where he played drums in the celebrated funk, soul and jam bands Mother Ming and theFoundation. It was during this time that he shared stages with George Clinton, The Slip, Brad Meldau, Joe Lovano, Mercury Rev, and many others. Additionally, these bands each released full-length records, which were major campus hits.
