I make music.

Sometimes by myself, sometimes with rappers, sometimes with singers and songwriters, sometimes for companies, and sometimes for people who want to dance. 

I've released three solo albums, For My Mother (2012), What If It Doesn't Get Better? (2016), and Most Days (2017). I've released rap records with Toki Wright, Guante, Chance York, The Tribe and Big Cats, and Ryan Kopperud. I've made songs with BJ The Chicago Kid, Mac Miller, P.O.S, Sage Francis, Lizzo, Caroline Smith, Eric Mayson, and many others. 

I've made music for Nike, CNN, The Golden State Warriors, PBS, Johnson & Johnson, and Martell. 

I've shared stages with Atmosphere, Brother Ali, P.O.S., Dessa, DJ Qbert, Schoolboy Q, DMX, Action Bronson, Riff Raff, and many others.

I also co-host The What If? Podcast, a weekly comedy show about all things strange, paranormal, and mysterious.
