MUSIC

From 2003 to 2006 I played bass in THE NEIN with bandmates Finn Cohen, Robert Biggers (both formerly of the White Octave), and Dale Flattum (of Steel Pole Bath Tub and Milk Cult, aka visual artist TOOTH). We toured the US and Canada heavily and released several EPs, an LP and a 7" single before I left North Carolina for Portland in February of 2006.
