Vocalist, Trumpet, Saxophone, Harmonica, Trombone.


My musical journey began with piano lessons in grade school then the discovery of the guitar in high school. I started writing songs and playing in punk bands during college in the Denver area moving from guitar to bass. After college I took an extended break from the band scene focusing on the acoustic folk guitar and classic flamenco guitar under the stars of southwestern Arizona. After returning to civilization, so to speak, in Casper, Wyoming, I got back into the social band scene with independent minded creative musicians as well as popular cover bands. My taste is wide ranging and tends toward the dark side as opposed to the pop side. I am diverse on the bass and have recently taken up the double bass.

I am playing in a blues-rock-surf band and would be interested in auditioning horn players and harmonica players. Contact 307-253-9552.
