I approach each song as a unique canvas, adding just the right amount of color and texture to bring your musical vision to life. Let's create something special together.

I primarily play bass but can also play acoustic guitar and sing. I've been a professional musician for 30 years now. I have done a small amount of touring in the past with the Mojo Farmers, and I have been playing multiple shows consistently every month with various other bands. I am currently with an original rock band called Camello Road, and we have several songs on various streaming platforms. I am also in a two-person acoustic vocal duo that plays a wide variety of music, like classic rock, country music, and current rock songs. I have been in a Led Zeppelin tribute band, Zeppapotapuss, for eight years, and at this point, I have John Paul Jones basslines coursing through my veins. I've played at music festivals in AZ and Utah and other shows throughout California, Colorado, and Mexico. Other bands I've played in are Lizard Shake, Lazy Jade, Future Exes, and Jim Bachman and the Day Drinkers. I have recorded on over five projects with various bands. I have opened shows for significant acts like Rusted Root, Steele Pulse, Carl Denson, Walt Richardson, Blues Traveler, and many more. I look at each song as a completely different painting when creating basslines. Deciding how much color and texture is needed to get the correct feeling across to complete the painting and get the desired outcome for the composition.
