Lions, Tigers, & Bears, Oh My!

Over the past year and a half, I've had so much fun playing music on CHIRP Radio. One of my favorite parts about DJ-ing is creating playlists based on themes and playing requests. Here's my Lions, Tigers, & Bears, Oh My! show, broadcast on 4-11-11. 

P.S. If you enjoy listening to CHIRP online, consider supporting the station here. Thank you!

Concert Photography.

Since moving to Chicago, I've relished the opportunity to go to an endless number of concerts. There's always something going on in the city. I've been captivated by watching musicians play their instruments for as long as I can remember, and even did a few staged photo projects on them at school; my favorites were with duct tape instruments.

Here are my favorite photos from shows around the city.


Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble.

The New Pornographers.

Rogue Wave.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

Kevin Andrew Prchal.
Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele.

The Decemberists.


Bag of Hammers - Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Sixteen Military Wives - The Decemberists
