Personal Projects
LEBOR (late 2023-present)
Lebor is a self-publishing name I use for the dispersement of ongoing fiction projects, published principally in the form of two-sided tri-fold pamphlets. More info may be found at

AWG INC / LIMB FUN (late 2017-2022) For a handful of years, AWG INC and LIMB FUN were the interchangeable monikers I used for graphic art projects. The project was first aligned with performance art but that quickly involved into working with imagery developed through digital mediums. This work was featured in small exhibits, and I worked with some of the greats of then-contemporary D.I.Y. music. Select clients include Bears (NYC), C.H.E.W. (IL), Colonial Wound (FL), Gillian Carter (FL), Spectacle Theater (FL), Vacancy (FL), and Wreath (FL). I put the project to an end to pursue academia and writing.

WITCHBENDER (2017-2022)
Witchbender was a hardcore punk band influenced by noise rock, sludge metal, and the likes of Youth Attack and Three One G records, but without interest in appealing to those fanbases. The band was once described as “smeared and volatile” or through some words that were similar in nature.


AD NAUSEUM (2013-???)In some ways, Ad Nauseum is still very much a band as they never formally disbanded. The group started in late-2012/early-2013 according to the influence of bands like Man is the Bastard, Bastard Noise, and Iron Lung, but with the increasing urge to play sludge and doom metal at excessive volume. They quickly became known for their deafening performances and developed their sound in closer alignment with sludge and doom metal.
