ABOUT

**Schedule is currently pretty loaded and I'm not looking to join new projects at this time unless gig-ready. Mostly open to gigs and sessions for now**

Bassist and electronic producer with academic background in composition and performance. Grew up in LA and started playing, went to Portland and played a couple hundred gigs, and am now back here again wanting to see if where my experience can take me.

I have experience playing just about every genre you can name at a professional level, excellent ability for memorizing complicated parts, and love playing music more than anything else.
