ABOUT

Hey there, I've been playing music for 18 years now. I've been making a living playing music for the last 5 years. I am primarily a bassist and a background vocalist. I also play pedal steel guitar. I am always looking for projects and gigs, no matter how big (I've toured nationally) or small (I like coffee houses too).

EQUIPMENT

I have 11 high quality basses and can cover any tone you're looking for. In addition I have a 1964 Ampeg B15, an Ampeg SVT, and an Aguilar head to further broaden my tone capabilities.

For steel guitar, I have a Simmons Genesis S10 10-string pedal steel. I also have both a Peavey Vegas amp and a Vox AC15. As well as a complete pedalboard if we need to get crazy.

Drum set consists of a four piece Gretsch kit with Sabian AAX and Zildjian A custom brass.
