ABOUT

A journeyman bassist, I have studied, played, toured, or gigged since I was a child. I studied upright bass with a principal of the Cincinnati Symphony and played pop, rock, and R&B on the road touring with regional and national acts. I read music and charts of all types and am a quick study without them. Always interested in talking about new playing situations.

Influences

On bass - Paul McCartney to begin with then Larry Graham, Stanley Clarke, and of course Jaco. My favorite all around bassist is David Bromberg. I have to include my many bass, piano, and theory instructors. I can't forget the influence of my parents - my mother was a piano and voice teacher and my father an audiophile who introduced me to recording.
