I am an accomplished musician focusing on bass playing. I'm more of a groove/pocket player than a notey player.I enjoy simplicity within a sophisticated context. I am comfortable playing a variety of styles, am comfortable playing uncommon meters and can read both notation and charts. Additionally, I have a background in classical piano, studied music from Brazil, Cuba and West Africa.
I also do work as an orchestrator/arranger, music director and live production consultant. I have a background in sound design and other areas of technical production for theatre.
I am interested in professional opportunities to perform (including touring) and record.
