I am a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, producer, and DJ with experience in many genres. I've composed and recorded for a variety of films, commercials, musicals, circus, and interactive visual art pieces. I continue to produce and record my own electronic and traditional (analog) music in the US and overseas.

     I have been performing since I was 16; just about everything under the sun including (but not limited to) solo folk and blues guitar, composing/producing for and MCing with live hip hop instrumental band A-Kaiwa and the Juku Boys, playing bass guitar in the Japanese funk/soul group Meromero Meron, and DJing/performing my original electronic music all over Japan/US.

     I also teach group/private lessons in Electronic Music Production/Performance, DJing, and private Instrumental Music Lessons in Guitar, Bass, and Banjo.

     I lived and worked in Kochi, Japan for two years and I've since returned to San Francisco (September 2011) to continue my music career here in the states.
