ABOUT

Energetic bassist whose focus is to engage the audience and draw them into an experience of joy through heart-felt musical expression. I seek like-minded musicians who are committed to their craft but have fun in the process. It is not my intent to "quit my day job" but I seek a consistent schedule gigging at least once a week. I am a quick study with a keen ear, an understanding of basic music theory, and the ability to follow on-the-fly via scale interval call-outs.
