ABOUT

I just relocated to the Colton/San Bernardino/Riverside area from Houston, TX. I played in many bands back in Houston (unfortunately, you've never heard of any of them) across lots of genres. Reggae, Punk, Metal, Classic Rock, Pop, Rock, Alternative, Grunge, R&B, and even recorded a couple of rap tracks with a friend.

The problem with most of the bands I've been in was not really having a direction. However, I think I've got something to work with now and I'm hoping to proceed with that.

I don't really know what else to put here. I play both lead and rhythm comfortably and I'll even play bass if it's the right situation. I like to think I'm pretty amicable.

If you're a band and you just need someone to critique your live show and give you mix suggestions then I am willing to help. In my experience, most bands fail because they have a sh*tty sound guy and/or don't know how to soundcheck properly. Just trying to help out if I can.
