ABOUT

-- Do yourself and me a favor and put contact info on your page! --

Bassist for ArtrA, but looking for another band or bands to work with. Most recently playing bass with Brainard, and with Ted Vigil (a John Denver Tribute). Previously playing with Reverent Circle, an original heavy rock band from Aberdeen; a rock cover band in the United Arab Emirates; a jazz trio in Ft Walton Beach, FL; for Burning Fern out of Brewton, AL - a 90's style band playing covers and originals; and the The Honey Badgers out of Destin, FL - a free-wheeling, jam prone, cover-band centered on an acoustic guitar/harmonica frontman who'd frequently jump from Blues Traveller to TLC and more. I've also played sax for reggae band Tribe Zion. Wrote, played, and recorded with Big Hairy Monster, a prog rock band in Warner Robins, GA, but while in Georgia I was also playing with a rock cover band (Stone Theory), a punk band (Gato Malo), a jazz/rock/blues fusion band (The Damp Wood Project), and sat session on a couple other local projects.

I've played just about every genre for which you'd want a bass guitar, and will play anything with any group of folks that aren't a bunch of no-talent ass-clowns (sorry, Michael Bolton). That being said, my roots are a mix of west coast punk, prog, funk, and jazz. I'm a versatile player that can improvise to the jam, pick-up nearly any song with just a listen or two, or can attempt to reach back to my childhood memories if you hand me a piece of sheet music to read. Just don't ask me to talk through the theory.

Give me a shout and lets start cranking out the jams.
