hey i did a poetry reading for the hemingway’s summer reading series. fun times! listen to it here:
i couldn’t have picked a better group of people to do this in front of.
thank you joan bauer, thank you jim cvetic, thank you scott silsbe.
loss is a seven inch record i put out on june 3rd, 2014.
although my name is on the cover, i feel this project was very much an equal collaboration between myself and my friend michael pisano, who created an animated video to each of the sides that is included in the sleeve as a dvd. i cannot express my gratitude to michael enough. check out his other projects here: http://www.michaelpisano.com

ghosts, etc. was an art show i curated and put my own artwork in. it opened at modernformations gallery in december 2012. the image above is the only painting i have documentary evidence of.
anyway it was a fantastic show (if i do say so myself) and showcased some of my favorite artists, as well as people, in pittsburgh.
