ABOUT

I am a Multi-instrumental musician with a deep love of music of all genres. Currently playing bass for a technical death metal band from West Palm Beach, Withered Throne, and then playing acoustic guitar in a cover band for fun with motorcycle riding friends, as well as another extreme metal side project.

Most of my musical energy these days is going into the extreme technical progressive metal genre because I tend to think that is where the real evolution of music is happening, at the crossroads of technical progressive death metal and djent. Always looking to connect with musicians and talent in the heavy metal genres.

Current non-metal musical interests are

bass - in an original reggae band with highly conscious lyrics, or an original progressive rock band

Guitar - An original progressive rock or blues based hard rock band. I can play either rhythm or lead guitar, with proficiency in any shades of those genres.

Drums - Jam bands, rock bands or even cover bands. Drums are my least proficient instrument, but I've studied the greats, studied percussion in the jazz ensemble in the college days, and can hold my own. Very difficult to find time to practice drums these days and never quite got down my Bossanova's and complex Latin percussions, but fill the role well in most circumstances not requiring an extremely sophisticated drummer (ie no progressive metal, latin influenced jazz etc). My drums are in storage and would be thrilled at any opportunity to get back behind a kit, not playing drums in years has been difficult.
