ABOUT

I am a professional guitarist that has been playing for over 20 years now. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas with a degree in Jazz Arranging. For the past four years I played on Carnival Cruise Lines as a music director, travelling all over the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Australia and the South Pacific, but now I am back to me home base. I am currently looking for established projects or bands within the Chicago area with both high levels of professionalism and musicianship. I am not exclusive to any particular genre, and will play anything to fit the bill. Please feel free to contact me for more information, and I will be there to jam!

*Disclaimer* Please note that while I do list playing at an expert level on bass guitar, I DO NOT play bass full time. I am open to doing substitute gigs or short term bass playing but I simply do not have an interest in playing bass full time for your band. Honestly I haven't played bass full time since 2007. Please do not be offended, but from now on, any messages regarding full time bass playing WILL be ignored.
