ABOUT

I'm a high school music teacher in the Metro Detroit area, and have studies music extensively. I have played guitar and bass in bands throughout most of high school and college (prog-metal, but have gotten out of that genre for quite a while!). I have studied classical music as a trombonist, as well as studying jazz and latin styles. My classical studies are not a burden! I do tons of playing by ear, and am comfortable jamming/improvising/soloing/composing/collaborating with all different styles.

Influences

I am interested in a HUGE variety of projects. Some possibilities include: Hip-hop/R&B cover band (guitar, bass, or trombone). Newgrass/folk group with a Punch Brothers/Nickel Creek influence (guitar/mandolin/vocal). Indie rock with a slight bent toward more progressive elements. Pop-classical collaborations.

But really, I am looking to find talented musicians to collaborate and perform with, and I am less worried about the exact genre.

EQUIPMENT

I play on a Martin acoustic guitar, Gibson 335 through a Vox AC30 for my electric, need a new bass (playing on an old P-bass), Breedlove mandolin, and an Edwards trombone.

None of that is as important as how well I play them though! :)
