Studio/live musician based out of the suburbs of Chicago. Chiefly a bassist, vocalist and songwriter with many years of experience in the local underground music scene as far back as 2003, but can also dabble in rhythm guitar, keyboards and sampling. Main musical styles I've worked in are based mainly in heavy metal, but I am open for whatever styles suit my fancy.
Up for collaboration, studio and online work for anyone in need of proper low-end rhythms. I have my own recording setup and can work from home recording my own parts (recording, mixing, mastering etc.) should the need arise.
