Bio
I started playing bass when I was 14. I started out playing in the school band and then so after I joined a band made up of my fellow classmates. I attended Berklee College of Music in '92 with 3 scholarships and graduated in '96 with a Bachelors Degree in Performing Arts. A few years after I graduated I moved to Los Angeles where I auditioned for a band, OTEP. 6 months after I joined the band we were signed to Capitol Records and landed a 3rd stage spot on Ozzfest in 2001. In the 10 years I was in the band we performed on Ozzfest 2002, in the states and in Europe and performed on Ozzfest 2004. While in the band we also recorded four full length recordings and one 5 song ep. We also had a very busy touring schedule which also took us to South America. I started teaching private bass lessons in 2007 and found it to be very enjoyable. I am now looking to expand my student roster.
