ABOUT

I presently play with The Standards (.thestandardsband) and The Nano Jazz Combo, but I also do showcase gigs and jazz gigs around the LA area. I'm a versatile and reliable bassist who can cover a range of genres from country, folk, americana, R&B, funk, Latin and jazz. I play both upright and bass guitar. I'm extremely dependable and hardworking.
