Outside Projects

Numerous bands across the U.S. - including Minneapolis, Tampa, and now Portland - have allowed me to record them over the years, and by doing so, have helped me learn more about the equipment I've worked with, and helped me refine my recording process.

Here is a selection of various one-off projects I worked on, or contributed to. To the best of my awareness, none of this material has been officially released, but can be shared here freely, through the expressed consent of the artists involved. Please keep in mind that this is not an endorsement of any sort of "Creative Commons" copyright, and that all of the material belongs to the the artists themselves. Failure to respect the proper ownership of someone else's artistic endeavors will only result in bringing a lot of bad juju upon you.
