Punk rock, dinosaurs, and 10,000 m & m's. 


I'm no musician, but I've recorded a few tunes for chicagomag.com, 

often shamelessly appropriating familiar riffs and beats, and made some lo-fi videos to go with them.

How do I love thee? Let

The grass-fed super hero for a new age

Takeoff of an obscure new

wave tune. But with pizza.
