ABOUT

Energetic and completed committed, I come from a classical piano background and then discovered metal in my teen years. I've been a pianist for 40+ years and a bassist for 25+. I studied up through college, I can read sight notation, chord charts and tab fairly well (definitely a perishable skill).

I predominantly enjoy writing & playing prog metal/rock as it puts an interesting spin on coming up with more original sounds as well as challenging my playing and writing.

I played bass exclusively with a T00L tribute band on the east coast for 5 years as well as various rock, metal and electronic projects.

I am all about bringing complete song writing with any group. I might fill the role as a bassist or keyboardist, but I liked to be involved with the production of the music, adding elements, orchestration, synths and/or programming and trying to give my music that little extra edge.

I am open to about playing anything with bass, synths and programming.
