I am a bassist, banjoist, and guitarist with experience playing rock, jazz, soul, jam band, Americana, alt-country, GB top 40, triple-A, folk, and bluegrass.
Electric bass has been my principle instrument since 1990, but since 2017 I've been focusing my attention on the banjo.
I studied Music Production & Engineering at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I've played with AJ Edwards & The List, Grassroot, The Dan Rodman Band, The Organic Sound Project, Evan Gavny (of Three Day Threshold), Evey's Late Night Dinner, Hot Mess, West Entrance, Jell, Johnny & The Undergarments, and numerous other original and cover-band projects. I also initiated and hosted a successful weekly open mic event in Harvard Square for a number of years.
What pays the bills: I am a Director of User Experience and Design for a financial technology company.
