ABOUT

I'm a talented multi-instrumentalist looking for a new group with as varied interests as myself. I've been playing music for most of my life, and I have experience playing in every setting from a dingy dive bar with three people in the audience to 800-seat opera house in Italy. I play several instruments, but the instrument I am most formally trained in and went to college for is the upright bass. I like to play covers, but my main intention is to write, record, and produce new music. I have no real interest in performing at this point, but I could be convinced with the right band.
