A great choice if you are looking for a versatile musician to craft the perfect bass line!
Hello all! I am a versatile and in-demand session and live bassist. After receiving a Bachelor's in Jazz Studies from The University of North Texas and a Masters in Music from The University of Texas at Austin, I have gone on to play with world class musicians in many styles including DJ Sparr, Ben Sollee, Gil Del Bosque, Matchmaker Band, The San Antonio Symphony Orchestra, Pete Rodriguez, Under The Rug, and many others. I am also an adept educator, and I was a Professor of Music at Austin Community College from 2019-2021. Currently, I reside in Washington, DC and play with the United States Air Force Band as the bassist for the Singing Sergeants ensemble. I am endorsed by Genzler Amplification and NS Design.
Studio-wise, I have the highest level and most reliable gear on the market today, and I am an expert at tooling my tone and approach to fit the song in whatever style is appropriate. I can tastefully and effortlessly sit in the mix as a pocket player or handle the rigorous demands of even the most complex Jazz Fusion.
