I’m a native of Marin County, California, and that’s where I started playing Irish traditional music in 2005. I’ve moved around a bit learning new tunes wherever I go. I have a special interest in fusion of the traditional musics of Ireland and Mexico.

I was a member of the Mexico City-based "A Campo Traviesa", and founded the "Cuernavaca Celta" sessions. I currently play with Celtifornia in the San Francisco Bay Area.

My album ¡Fandango Bragh!, an album of Irish-Mexican musical fusion, was released on September 1, 2016: fandangobragh.bandcamp.com
