Bass Guitar, Guitar, Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting, Upright Bass
I have been playing music for 19 years, beginning on piano at age 4. Since then, I have learned the saxophone, guitar, drums, and bass, as well as cultivated a deep understanding of music theory. In the past few years, bass/bass guitar has become my primary instrument. Learning and playing music has enriched my life greatly, and I believe that can be true for you as well.
I have been performing since a young age, and have participated in multiple performing groups over the years. Currently, I am the bassist for The Hot Club of Zion (jazz) and bassist/songwriter for the Merchant Royal (rock).
I am currently attending the University of Utah and am in the process of completing a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Performance (Bass). This program has greatly expanded my knowledge of music theory, history, and composition. It has also provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians in Utah,
I am grateful for all of the joy and satisfaction that music has given me and enjoy helping others experience the same.

I began playing music at the age of six. I started with the piano and saxophone but found my true passion, by age eight, in the guitar. I took private lessons from a great teacher for the first seven consecutive years of my study and further developed my knowledge and skills through self-directed study. I received my Undergraduate degree in Music Theory from the University of Utah. The pursuit of this degree allowed me to study many different musical aspects, including: composition, music history, ear training, sight reading and music technology, along with classical and jazz guitar studies. Over the years, through my education and practice, I have learned a great deal, not just about the guitar, but also ways to teach music and engage students in their pursuit of musical knowledge.
I played in my first music group when I was 17 and started composing and arranging music at that time. I have performed at numerous events and venues, eventually touring in the western U.S. I have a true passion for music and I love sharing this passion and teaching others.
