He then held a number of jobs with notable music indies including Rough Trade Inc in San Francisco where he played in yet more bands including [a=Paris Working], Shigaku Trading (home of [l=What Goes On Records]) in London, where he had a brief stint in [a=Scientists, The (2)], and finally to Chicago where he was the founding partner at Cargo Records America and ran the [l=Fist Puppet] label and played in yet more local bands .
He currently runs Chicago-based distributor [l=Crosstalk] International Inc and quasi-label [l=Super Bro] while working on various music projects.
