Bio

I grew up in Omaha and have also lived in New Orleans. I graduated from Loyola University and then moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. Though technically trained in the traditional style of cello playing, I have bent the rules and "un-learned" all of that in order to find the sounds I want from my cello. I use some unorthodox bow techniques, and often some guitar pedals to get my sound. I have been a part of many rock bands and experimental groups, and have received awards and commissions for my playing. Most recently, I received the McKnight Foundation Fellowship Award for 2006 partly based on the work I did on my cd. I have been influenced by minimalist composers and heavy metal bands of the 80s haha! I think it's funny that when I get onstage most people wonder what they are about to see, for they often don't expect to hear some guy play cello at a club. They usually get all quiet because there is a "classical" instrument onstage--like it commands their respect or something. But I like it when people get into it and make some noise! I like to play solo, or collaborate with other songwriters. I have done many recording sessions for other people, and enjoy doing my work.
