About

I grew up in Western New York, went to college and bummed around the East Coast for a time. I now call Trumansburg, NY home. I tend to think of myself as a songwriter first and foremost, recording and performing under the moniker Louiston (Check out records over at the Mothership). After several EPs, my first full-length, Reconciler, is due out this year. I also have a film credit, having co-wrote the screenplay Zeus. You can read all about it here (or see the trailer below). By day, I pay the bills as a freelance journalist.

While this depository has changed somewhat in its 5+ years, it’s still a celebration of DIY artists and creatives, people with big, audacious ideas. Put simply, this blahg highlights things I like. Along with that, expect thoughts on books, snarky rants fueled by my ongoing battle with Short Man’s Complex, LOTS of sarcasm, occasional profanity and posts about my own little projects.
