- Favorite Genres:
- Not really genre-loyal, but when it comes to bass-playing, I'll seek out music in almost any genre that challenges and interests me. I find a lot of this music in prog rock/metal, trash metal, alt rock, etc., but more importantly, it does exist in almost every genre of music. I'm not much of a Jazz guy, but I was forced to learn from it when I took lessons, so I'd be lying if I dismissed it as an important influence.
- Other Hobbies & Interests:
- Reading, snowboarding, wakeboarding, animals
