Live Music

Want to take it up a notch at your next party or private event? I can perform hours of acoustic covers for your guests (I know more than 100 songs spanning six decades, from the Beatles and Tom Petty to Olivia Rodrigo and Noah Kahan, but can learn specific requests given advance notice) and provide any necessary sound equipment.

I know the ropes of live entertainment. I've performed at clubs and bars all over the world, but also at wedding rehearsals and birthday parties. And of course I've played hundreds of shows in and around Boston -- including many a Saint Patrick's Day and, for awhile, every other Saturday night in Southie... so rest assured, I can handle your drunk uncle!

Rates: $125 for the first hour, $100 per additional hour 


As much as I'd love to make music for a living, I'm actually a professional writer and editor by trade. My work has appeared in the Boston Globe, Apartment Therapy, This Old House, MSN Money, and elsewhere - including my real estate and home improvement blog, House & Hammer.

I specialize in travel features, housing and real estate, and opinion essays, and I'm available for off-site freelance writing, ghost writing, or copy editing.

Rate: $75/hr or $1/word
