ABOUT

In 2003, I began my involvement with music in the public school system. The following year I picked up the double bass (upright) and continued with it through 2007. After putting down the upright in 2007, I switched to electric bass and took lessons for roughly five months. Soon thereafter, I felt comfortable enough to play out with some local musicians. The range of musicians I “sat-in with” was quite broad but, all the experiences only helped me to grow as a musician. Throughout high school I progressed as a bassist, continuing to play with local bands from all genres. Needless to say there is no type of music I haven’t played.
At the root of all musical experiences is my true passion and dedication to an amazing art and craft. There is nothing I’d rather do than play music endlessly day after day. My practice regiment is vigorous and intense, allowing my learning curve to be exponential and astonishing. Above all else, my love for music comes out in my live performances. I believe in giving audiences a show they will never forget. In addition to bass, I am also versed on guitar and drums, giving me solid writing knowledge and allowing for effective communication with other musicians. When it comes to music theory, I can both read sheet music and learn by ear. In addition, I have experience with in-ear monitoring systems. All that being said, I do have extensive experience with cover gigs ranging from classics, blues, funk, country, rock, top 40, and metal/hardcore.
