Music Stuff

I’m still moving stuff over from my other site but here’s what I have so far. Let me know if you’re looking for something you don’t see…

Instrument Building

Stories Coming Soon:

  • The Tiny Tele: 5 string electric mandolin
  • DZ-18V: Martin Dreadnaught Guitar Kit
  • Octave Mandolin Conversion from a Harmony Tenor Guitar


  • The Pick: My project to support bluegrass and Americana in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jams, shows, band ensemble workshops.
  • Take the Stage:  8 week band ensemble workshops where I coach 7 strangers to put on a show at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley.


  • The California Bluegrass Association: I work with the CBA to develop community and interest within a younger, more urban demographic. I also provide support with web projects and coordinate a stage at their annual Father’s Day Festival
  • The San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival: As a committee member for 3 years, my main interest has been in developing workshops and opportunities for less experienced bands to participate. The workshop day and Bluegrass & Old-Time Revue is a developing tradition that seems to be taking off.
