ABOUT

I've been playing bass since the end of the Naughties, ever since I finagled my way into playing bass with my friends, despite never having owned a bass by then. A Decade and some change later, I've been hard at it, and am in multiple groups, seeing how far I can take this once hobby, now passion.
