About Me

I started my musical life as a self-taught acoustic guitar player around the age of 9 years old. When I was 13 my friends decided that they wanted to start a rock band and I volunteered to learn how to play bass. After nearly a decade, and a handful of bands later, I currently play for an R&B band and occasionally do studio work and substitute work for other bands. My current focus is on writing my own music (R&B with folky vibes) and trying to get it ready to release as a full album.

In addition to playing as a professional musician, I also have interned at a recording studio in order to learn about audio engineering. I am now very comfortable recording and mixing my music and I feel confident that I can do so at a high level. I am happy to help with any questions regarding pro audio equipment/software, especially microphones.

Music has been a huge part of my life for a long time now. I've supported myself through music-related endeavors since I was 20 years old. Music is something that brings me joy and I am happy to share the knowledge that I have with anyone and everyone in the community who might benefit from it.

When it comes to bass, I'm a huge gear head. I can answer nearly any question about bass gear that you can come up with.

I'm currently playing on:

Main bass:

-A non-branded P/J bass. Featuring Aguilar/Kloppmann pickups, Thomastik Infeld Jazz Flats, and combination of Hipshot and Babicz hardware.

Live rig:

-Orange AD200B head and Orange OBC410 bass cab

Studio rig:

-A Designs REDDI tube DI box

Pedals that I use:

I'm a bit of a pedal junky and have an ever growing collection. Amongst a great many other things, I am a huge fan of EarthQuaker Devices' pedals.

I use D'Addario and Mogami cables for both live and studio gigs.
