I am a music writer who sometimes also likes to take photos.

I live in the St. Louis area with my dogs, Maggie and Tucker (see below).

My songwriting heroes are Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy, and Ryan Adams.

My favorite song is and will always be "Cortez The Killer" by Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

(Seriously, let's listen to it right now.)


My blog is called Speakers in Code, named by Katie Guymon after the Wilco lyric, "speakers are speakin' in code" from the song "Can't Stand It."

I love sad songs. I love raw emotion. I love raw guitar tones. I go by feel.
