I greatly enjoy doing session work. It can be quite challenging at times, but it always yields rewards. Click here to read about how I got my start. I am available for session work when my schedule permits and may be hired out of my home studio (equipment list available here) or elsewhere. If you are interested in hiring me, please e-mail me at orbinator@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your interest! I will respond to you within 48 hours, so if I do not then it means that I didn't receive your inquiry. Please e-mail me again - thank you!

     Side note: It is not a stipulation that I must be allowed clearance to post all -- or any -- of the tunes that I track for a session on YouTube. Posting is a byproduct of what I do and it became a fairly effective source of promotion for both my playing and the artist(s) involved. However, if you are hesitant in hiring me because of a presumption that your music must be streamed, that is a misconception. I'd rather have the work, so please reconsider!

     The following is both an 'extended' and 'selected' discography. The extended portion includes songs from recordings in which I was considered a session musician and is arranged somewhat chronologically. Many of the older recordings are included in the music player below (these were done before I began filming my takes). I’ll update this as I complete the projects on my end. The selected portion also features releases from my personal projects/bands. The earlier works will be posted under the aural section of media, as they are not 'session-related.' I’ll update the selected portion chronologically when projects see a proper release.
