ABOUT

I am an accomplished Jazz Bassist with a B.S. in composition and several years of playing Blues in St. Louis, MO. Both Blues, and Blues/Rock. Sometimes there simply is no reason to skimp, especially when you need a Bassist, and not a Bass player. Bass Players are a dime a dozen, but when the chips are down. You just can't compete with Experience.

It is my goal to get in a band and be connected with other like focused musicians with careers in mind and not who get to be the Diva. Eat a Snickers and let's get to work!

I am available for studio recording, and I am very affordable.
