I perform regularly as a member of New York based Indie Pop group, Salt Cathedral (formerly il Abanico). Some highlights include official showcases at SXSW, NXNE, North Side, and Sony BMI summer nights, a music video on MTV, and features in CBC and the Los Angeles Times. In the last few years, I've played hundreds of shows across the U.S and Canada in locations such as New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Atlanta, Orlando, and Toronto and toured alongside bands including Hundred Waters (OWSLA), Freelance Whales (Mom+Pop) and Bomba Estereo (Sony).
