Professional Singer, Guitarist and Songwriter

Contact me at for booking

I grew up playing music, soaking in as much as I could on our family piano with help from my mom, who was a church organist and choir director. After playing recitals and singing in choirs in high school, I started playing guitar in college. 

I was a street musician and musical stand-up comedy artist in New York City for a few years before settling in Kansas City to play with numerous bands and start teaching vocals and guitar. 

 In 2002, I helped form the band Brother Bagman and was signed to Kansas City record label Darkhorse Productions. I co-produced 3 albums over 6 years and played hundreds of live shows all over the Midwest.

In 2010, I relocated to Los Angeles and started the band Simply Otto and released original demos that can be found at

My career evolved to become a professional singer and guitarist for hire starting in 2016 performing with Claire Dallison at the famous Baked Potato in Studio City. Since then, I have played all over Southern California with many acts including original rock band Kid Planet and unique cover bands
like Flogging Seagulls and Jambox.

I’ve also developed a new solo acoustic show
called The 100 – check out my Live page to see
where I’m performing next.

I still love creating original music and look forward to
releasing my first material as a solo artist in 2024.
