ABOUT

I play guitar and bass...for the next project I jump into I'd like to play bass. My background is in various forms of rock, but I am not looking to play any specific genre, I am here to have a good time and be challenged musically.

Through the years I've played and recorded in various musical projects with my brothers (I am the 4th of 6 brothers in a large musical family) and others. These days I write, record and publish my own tunes and go by the name Dead Poinsettia.
