I moved to Austin (from Washington D.C.) to be a singer/songwriter like Townes Van Zandt. I studied at UT’sÂ School of InformationÂ and taught Audio for the Internet. After five years at UT’s business school, I’ve worked since 2011 for theÂ Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, first as Web Guy, now as Director of Communications. When I’m not working I’m hanging out with my family, making music, riding my bike, taking pictures.
I learned to sing and play at church and school. I started on my dad’s trumpet in middle school and when I got a guitar for my 16th birthday I wrote songs and played at church. At NYU I played open mics on Bleeker St. In Austin I cut my teeth at the Cactus Cafe, Ruta Maya, Cafe Mundi.
In 2008 I began playingÂ a new kind of gig, bringingÂ my folk music to idyllicÂ outdoor settings, preferably in a park, by the water. In the Summer of 2014, I started holding Sunday Singalong at the park by my house.
I love to share my enthusiasm and vision for how cheap, ubiquitous, web-based tools can empower artists, educators, and non-profits toÂ connect withÂ their community. I help peopleÂ develop a strong web presence built on an architecture of engagement.Â I help organizationsÂ build identities for the networked world.
