Angela and I worked together on the 2005 performance and photographic work, "Petals on the Tongue". The opening occurred on a snowy night, on freshly painted crisp white walls at the newly established Fireplace Gallery. Angela's photography highlighted the previous spring's blooms and foliage some with a coating of honey. The vibrancy of the show made the otherwise brown and dark winter come to life. The show ran from December, 2005 through January, 2006.

This year, Bob and I will be celebrating nearly twenty years of collaborative work in music. Bob's XSG Media has released trade editions of CD's by Prima Volta and my most recent project twenty-eight-decibels (28dB), among others. He runs a small but well equipped studio where much of my recent music has been recorded. He has also played drums and percussion on a number of my songs including selections on my new album due out in January, 2013.
I played bass and sang with Zoinks! and served as the only original member when we quit playing in 1998. The music made for good memories for many of our fans and allowed the band to tour Europe after frequent national U.S. tours. Zoinks! released a heavy volume of material during our time and aside from a few reunion shows, Zoinks! no longer writes music or records as a band. Zac Damon (guitarist and singer) plays in Miracle Drugs, Bob Conrad (drummer) plays in The Firebombing, Arne Cherkoss (guitarist and singer) plays in Underhand, and I am currently working on a new double album of material. You can hear my recent recordings in the portfolio section of this website.
