I’ve been playing bass since I was 13.   I grew up in Albany, New York, and got a lot of early experience there playing professional blues gigs in middle school and high school.  I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I studied with Anthony Vitti, Danny Morris, Oscar Stagnaro, and Matt Garrison.  After a contract playing for a Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship orchestra I spent the next four years playing gigs and recording in New England and throughout the northeast.  I was a part of one of the top general business bands in Boston, and got to play for such organizations as The Boston Red Sox and City Year.  I also opened for The Spinners and Tavares.  In September of 2011 I relocated to Los Angeles, where I’ve continued to gig and record, as well as teach.  In LA I played extensively with the following groups and artists:  The Backbeat Brawlers, The Luke Mulholland Band, Tennessee Trouble, Abby Posner, Kristen Cook, Alaina Blair, Bo Riley, D.on Darox & The Melody Joy Bakers, Saroja, The Walking Phoenixes, and Everett Coast.  I have experience playing a wide range of styles on both bass guitar and upright bass.  In addition,  I’ve played cello on several original artists' recordings.
