BIO

I really don’t know how to take seriously the task of writing a Biography about myself.

I love playing bass, I love writing music - speaking of things I love: I also love coffee and pizza, writing and telling stories, comic books, drawing pictures, movies with swords in them, adventures, and my wife and daughters.

What else do you want to know about me?
Do you want to know about all the amazing musical experience I have amassed over the last 25 years? The places I’ve toured? The songs I’ve written? The bands I’ve been in? Do you want to know how fast I can shred? Do you want to know how slappy is my slap style?

Well, good. Here are the answers in order:

  • 25 years of experience = groove as hard as you can.

  • The continental US, Canada, Australia, China.

  • Check out the bandcamp page, as well as the discography below

  • Exhaustive list can be found here

  • Super fast.

  • Slap Style Slappity Rating is right around a 3400.
