swivel生長於美國俄亥俄州。1989年，他買了一把低音吉他跟擴大音箱，並使用舊型雙軌磁帶錄音機開始錄製音樂。在90年代初期，swivel與同樣俄亥俄州背景出身的Platter Sliced Bacon - 著名的迷幻噪音團體一起作演出。
90年代中期，他於波特蘭的俄勒岡設立工作室。在波特蘭的期間，swivel參與眾多的音樂演出，其中最為所知的是與Mohammed Omelette和Roger That的合作，這兩個組合皆著重在即興迷幻噪音的創作。2000年swivel開始在韓國首爾及台北作演出，並於2007年成立swivelized sounds。swivelized sounds呈現的是一種屬於自創式的實驗性迷幻聲響。http://cargocollective.com/swivelizedsounds
