Where I work.

I live with my partner in the neighborhood of Pilsen. We converted an extra room into a working studio. You can also visit me at Autotelic Studios where I share space with 8 other artists, The Arts Incubator in Washington Park, or wherever there's Wi-Fi.


If you like what I create, write, and record, you can send me a little money if you are feeling generous.



Note that I check email once a day, Monday through Friday, and other communication methods a little more frequently.

I cannot guarantee a response to each message, but I do read them all. Since this is my philosophy, I'd rather spend more time making instead of responding to messages.
