ABOUT

I've been playing electric bass since I was a kid and have never fallen out of love with the instrument. I like to play various styles of music and gig all around PA and NJ. I've also recently started building my own basses. I'd like to stretch myself musically a bit more, learn something new, meet new musicians, and have fun playing new and old material.

Influences

I'm extremely omnivorous. That said, I'd be most interested in playing progressive and fusion in any genre (rock, metal, jazz, bluegrass). Learning bass in the '90s my musical diet was heavy on both Dream Theater and the Flecktones if that gives you any sense of my background! I'd love to improve my improv chops. Other than that, I love anything with a solid groove or an interesting melody.
