ABOUT

Bassist for Hire, looking to hone my skills gigging, write music, and get into making a living playing music. I have a couple gigs under my belt, with more booked playing with my current original band.

Constantly pursuing improvement in my playing, also open to shutting up and just learning something new. Being the least experienced person in the room is where I'm most comfortable!

I'm always open to new creative projects, as well as projects that are already ongoing. I find it a lot easier to be creative and have fun playing bass, though Id say I'm capable of taking up a Rhythm Guitar role if needed. Working on my vocals for backups.
