I know, it's a lot of vowels. (If you can say "Raoul," you're halfway there.)

I'm a writer, editor, broadcaster and musician from New York City, currently based in Washington, D.C., named after a biblical hero, an Eastern religion and a jazz song. I make internet and radio for NPR's Music and Arts desks. For love, I make guitar pop with too many words.



Band inquiries are best directed here.

I am good at Twitter and OK at Tumblr.
