ABOUT

I'm a musician influenced by many styles of music. I'm always trying to learn something new. I can cover a wide range of music. One of my goals is to be able to read music. Right now I'm a freelance bassist in the Lancaster,PA area playing part time, but looking to go fulltime with the right opportunity.

Influences

Jaco Pastorius change the way I thought I needed to play. Rocco Prestia, Victor Wooten, I got to meet and get a lesson from Michael Manring during Gerald Veasley's first Bass Bootcamp. During the camp we met Victor Bailey, Gary Willis, Doug Wimbish also.
Alain Caron, Marcus Miller, and many others.
What I like to do is not memorize what all these guys do. Some of the things they do I can't even come close to. So what I do is try and get the feel of what they do and add myself to it to make it my own thing.
