ABOUT

40 yr old father of 6 kids (that love the fact that I play music). Married to my best friend. She is also very understanding and supportive of my music. I work at the Post Office in New Albany, OH. Been there for about 5 yrs. 10 yrs total with Postal Service. I am a very reliable and dedicated musician. I have pro gear for bass. I have semi-pro gear for Electric guitar. (semi-pro because it is old). I have reliable transportation for rehearsals & gigs. I am a very easy-going guy that gets along with most anybody.

Influences

Steve Vai; James Hetfield; Cliff Burton; Elliot Fisk; Michael Hedges; Bill Dutcher; Slash; Stu Hamm; Billy Sheehan; and so on.......Pretty much any talented musician (local or other-wise) has had an influence on me. I like my bass lines to groove with the song. Whether that means I am rolling, slapping, scale-ing or just playing single 1/4 note bumps, it doesn't matter to me. I am pretty accomplished at either bass or guitar. Not as good as the afore-mentioned influences, but you can here them all in whatever I play. After 20+ years of playing, I have performed in metal, country, top-40, classic rock and ska/reggae bands, & I have loved them all!
