Greetings!  I'm a professional bassist living in Austin.  I have my undergraduate in music performance from the University of Northern Colorado.  I've been performing/teaching/studying with/for and often in front of real live actual people since 2002.  I can improvise, I can read music, I'm not half bad on a good day, I play both electric and upright bass, I charge less than Geddy Lee, my friends say I have pretty good hair, I show up on time, and I wanna be in your band.  A few names, past and present, of friends that I've worked with: Bluesqueezebox, the Austin Piazzolla Quintet, Jenifer Jackson, The Merles, Quiet Company, The Parish Festival, Julie Slim and Rendez Vous, Hot Club of Austin, The Dead Sea, The Maypops, The Elevation Quartet, Mamahawk, Rent Party, Vintage 15 big band, Graham Weber, the Abilene Philharmonic, the Central Texas Master Singers, Simple Measures, Hora Once, Chase Gassaway, Elsa Cross, Hill Country Strings, Kevin Ahart, Luke Hill and the Hot Pursuits, Will Taylor Strings Attached, Mundi, Selmer's Arch, and other things when the phone rings.  If you're looking for a bassist, or a bass teacher, please drop me a line!  Thanks for stopping by.
