ABOUT

Available for live shows, touring, local studio work and remote tracks.

In the pocket player with many years experience live, in the studio, and on the road. I am into playing for the music and enjoying the experience making music together. When I'm hired for a gig, I want to help execute the artists vision and play what the music needs. I can play previously written parts, come up with new bass lines, or anything in between :)
