Music is my life! I primarily play bass guitar for a living, but I also play drums in a rock band. Playing bass has taken me all over the US and to Europe twice. I live for the studio and, to me, the best memories are listening back to great music I got to record on. I love great sounding gear and good vintage instruments are fantastic! My main bass is a 1978 Fender P Bass that I've owned for 7 or 8 years. I also play the upright bass and I've had the pleasure of recording it several times. I really started playing music when I was 17 and within a year I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life. No matter what people told me, I never let myself get demotivated and I've stayed the course. I absolutely love teaching others how to do what I do!

Currently playing bass in a whole bunch of bands you haven't heard of yet. You may have heard of Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat. I'm in Jim's band (when he's not busy playing second guitar with George Thorogood & The Destroyers!). I played with a blues rock guitarist named Lance Lopez for 2 years. I've gotten to hang out and record with Dug Pinnick of King's X. Done studio work all over Texas and in California. Performed with Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts former guitarist Nick Maybury. Backed up former Fleetwood Mac and Bob Seger guitarist Rick Vito. Backed up Eric Gales at the 2016 Dallas International Guitar Festival.
