ABOUT

- I'm not interested in playing bass primarily in a band. I am a guitarist and can sit in on bass to switch things up when needed.
- My tastes range from blues, jazz, fusion, funk, ambient, experimental, improvisation and electronica.
I started playing in my teens and have explored musical genres for many years.
I grew up in the Chicago area in the blues, jazz, electronic and garage band scenes. I've been in Colorado for almost 15 years and always looking for like minds. I'm self taught, play by ear and I tend to practice daily as a ritual. I'm focussed and dedicated.

- I was a member in the electronica band "WindupSpaceship" for a couple years. We recorded our impov sessions and now periodically help each other with personal projects.
- I am available for studio work and soundtracks. If you have a band that plays originals with some interesting covers, I can add allot to the sound that you may not have thought of before with guitar synth. I am open to forming a band that is focussed on ambient, electronic and improv blues jazz fusion influences.

- I suggest going straight to my Sound Cloud page to listen to my added tracks. This way you can see the musicians and instrumentations involved. The added tracks below are more guitar influenced to give example of my playing.
