Songwriter, Vocalist & Mandolin Player

About My Music

I’m a Boston-area Mandolin player, vocalist, and songwriter with a lifelong passion for art and music.

Since 2008, I’ve been playing with Peter O’Halloran & The Hired Men.

In 2019, I joined the legendary Boston garage rock band The Dogmatics, contributing to songwriting, vocals, and mandolin.

Beyond performing, I contribute as a creative director for Rum Bar Records label artists. Music and creative activities fuel my professional work as a strategist and product designer.
