ABOUT

If someone was to ever describe me as a combination of Edgar Meyer, John Zorn, and Balkan Beat Box I think I would feel comfortable retiring a happy man.

I was fortunate to receive a very strong classical training from a rather young age while knowing and playing with a very eclectic group of Macedonian, Syrian, and folk musicians. Also growing up with jewish liturgical music and the constant country music that comes from being from Texas has led to a pretty strange combination of influences and interest.

I really love improvising and arranging. Right now I primarily teach, do session work on upright bass, and sometimes musicals or whatever on electric bass.
