A native San Franciscan playing bass since 1982,I believe in providing a solid,unshakable rhythmic and harmonic foundation for the ensemble.

As a veteran of the 80's Broadway rock scene, I have played at the Mabuhay GardensThe Stone, the Chi-Chi Club, and almost every other conceivable venue in the city.

I have ties to the local blues scene, having played with "Country" Pete McGill at the infamous A&C Club in Oakland, as well as with many others in the Bay Area.

In the 1990's I performed vocally in the Ina Chalis Opera Ensemble.

After attending The Player's School of Music in 1997, I was in the bass chair for the local band "Blue Oasis", which opened for such rock luminaries as Rick Derringer and All Points Bulletin(Lynyrd Skynyrd Alumni).

I have performed the bass parts for full productions of the Broadway shows Kiss me Kate,  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,  Crazy for You, and Little Shop of Horrors.

I currently play in a Jazz Quartet.

My influences are Blues, Rock, R&B, and Jazz, as well as Funk (James Brown) and Motown(Jamerson).

A talented and consummate professional, I bring heart and soul to all situations.
