ABOUT

I've been playing bass since I was a teenager and it's a huge part of my life. I'd like to stretch myself musically a bit more, meet new musicians, and have fun playing new and old material. I work in Montgomery County and have two young children so for the moment I'm not looking to join a band or commit to regular practices, just meet new people and jam as schedules align.

Influences

I'm extremely omnivorous. That said, I'd be most interested in playing progressive and fusion in any genre (rock, metal, jazz, bluegrass). I can easily handle the prog classics (Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Marillion, Spock's Beard, etc.) and have the chops for a lot of Flecktones, Dream Theater (well, to a point), and weirder stuff. I'd love to improve my improv chops. Other than that, I love anything with a solid groove or an interesting melody.
