From 2005 to 2016, I was a freelance music publicist, creating campaigns for bands such as Graf Orlock, Kayo Dot, Jucifer, and The Sword. Prior to that I was the head of publicity at Earache Records' US office for five years.
Formerly the drummer of Today Is the Day and Wetnurse, I played hundreds of shows across North America and Europe and recorded on four albums. I am now writing, recording, and performing music under the name Body Stuff.
As a writer, I have been published in print in VICE, Mass Appeal, High Times, The Journal, and more.
In 2006 I founded Precious Metal, a weekly live music series in New York City. Consisting of over 300 shows in its 7-year run, Precious Metal was named "New York's premier metal party" by DJ Jonathan Toubin, "NYC's best metal party" by The Village Voice, "the city's most open-minded metal night" by Time Out New York, "the best in contemporary extreme metal" by The A.V. Club, and "Manhattan's epicenter of underground metal" by Invisible Oranges.
I live and work in Brooklyn, New York. I am a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College (B.A., 1999).
