Electric Bass Home

Welcome to My Corner of the Web!

Hello, and thank you for visiting my little spot on the internet. I'm a freelance electric bassist residing in the San Francisco bay area. I'm well versed in R&B, Jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Blues, Rock, Country, Reggae, Folk...you name it, and I'd love to help bring your music to life. I have nearly 30 years of professional experience in both studio and live settings, and I take great care in being faithful, authentic, and enthusiastic in my approach.

Please look around, check out some of the music, and if you're so inclined, follow some links to people and companies who inspire and inform. Thanks for your time, and please don't hesitate to contact me. Let's make some music!
