I have eclectic tastes and always want to expand my horizons, so if you think I may not fit your band, count me in anyway!

I've got experience gigging at venues and bars from central Jersey to NYC, including Starland Ballroom, The Stone Pony, the Knitting Factory. I've recorded in professional studios and have no trouble following a metronome.

The biggest influences on my playing are those who I play with. Other than that, I think reading non-stop about music theory and technique has helped me develop my sound.

Some of my favorite bassists include Jaco Pastorius, Flea, Victor Wooten, Jeff Ament, and Steve Bailey.
