A longtime music fan and record collector with a passion for the live experience. I remember more minutiae about the history of Rock 'n Roll than the average person should have the right to know. I'm equally delighted to stroke the keys and compose a story or chat up an artist about their music. Most all musical genres get my toe tapping, but jangle pop, roots rock, and singer/songwriter tunes usually catch my ear first.
Some would say I spend way too much time at shows. I would say I don't spend enough time at shows. Sometimes you can find me pushing faders and twisting knobs for bands at Stagger Inn. Infatuated with Lucero just a little bit and Chuck Ragan is my spirit animal. Really enjoy all types of music as well as whiskey, stouts, and Cardinals baseball. Natural habitat has become Off Broadway.
A professional apothecary with a penchant for audio engineering, craft beer and all things music. I'm just as likely to enjoy a Smithsonian Folkways compilation as a mathy, post-rock concept album. If it spins...I want it!
