While I mostly play bass (any style), I also sing, play jazz piano, drums and percussion, and saxophone. I have performed with many bands over the years; from jazz trios to big bands to rock bands. I also used to be a percussionist in my home town's orchestra for several years.

Some artists that I've worked with are: Nueva Trio, Stormporter, Joanne Slagel (video), Sibte Hassan Malik (video), Ardour, Laura Voyce, 258 Civic, Joshua Herbst, The Moisties, Carbon Footprint, Soulfire, Three Nails.

I have also done a fair bit of session work and played for many different conferences over the years. I have played in church for as long as I can remember, and I am currently actively playing at City Impact Church both on stage and in the studio on a weekly basis.

Gear: Musicman Stingray 5, Fender P Bass, Ampeg/Marshall 4x10 bass rig, numerous effects pedals, Korg weighted stage piano, DAW based synth rig.
