As a performer, he's toured nationally and internationally as a folk singer and jazz guitarist with Seattle-based groups Modern Bygones, Honeysuckle Rye and Sebastian and the Deep Blue among others. As an educator he has performed and taught classes and workshops at public and private schools and regional festivals like NW Wintergrass and the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. Further, he spent 4 years working in the non-profit community arts world, helping cultivate a non-profit music education program in south Seattle called the Rhapsody Project,  where he assisted in developing curriculum, scholarship programs, an instrument library, a concert series and community jam sessions, all under the mission of "building community through the gospel of American roots music."
