I am a Berklee trained session and touring bassist based in Santa Rosa, CA. In my professional career he has toured alongside Morbid Angel, Origin, Genitorturers, Echo Black, Seven Spires, Misery Index, Dreaming Dead, and more. I'm is best known for my work as the bassist of Century Media band The Offering, and death metal band Hate Storm Annihilation. 

As a freelance bassist, I've played with the artists Sparkee, Black Trip, Model/Actriz, Harmless Habit, giantQUEEN, and many others. Through these bands I have opened for acts like Children of Bodom, Dirkschneider, Carach Angren, Dreamcrusher, Show Me The Body, Lost Society, Gus G, and more. 

I'm proudly endorsed by Darkglass Electronics, Ernie Ball Music Man instruments, Ultimate Ears in-ear monitors, and Coldcock Whiskey.

My teaching style is relatively simple. You tell me what you'd like to accomplish as a musician, and I will provide music, techniques, exercises, and theory to help you achieve what you want to achieve. 

Three years as a Berklee student (still currently enrolled)

Full resume available here!

Most of my curriculum will be based around what you'd like to do.

For example, if you'd like to get into the start of great electric bass playing, we can cover Larry Graham, James Jamerson, Chuck Rainey, and all the intricacies of the lines that they made.

And if you'd like to learn how to keep up with 16th note double bass at 280bpm or higher, I can show you that too!

I'm really just focused on turning you into the bass player that you want to be, and will guide you in the direction you want to go while still keeping things interesting.
