ABOUT

Been playing bass since 1991 - when the instrument was bigger than me. Grew up surrounded by musicians. Played in a moderately successful band in Washington (approached to sign to a record label but turned down the horrendous contract). Comfortable and confident playing a diverse set of styles. Moved to Tyler 3 1/2 years ago and been missing playing live on a regular basis. Have been doing some Internet-based studio sessions and recordings in the meantime.
