    Influences and Teachers:
    I haven't received formal instruction on bass, but I have received a moderate amount of formal instruction in rock, jazz, and classical guitar. My bass technique is largely informed by playing classical guitar and reading talkbass threads on bass technique.

    I have studied theory at Foothill and DeAnza colleges, and have a AA in music from Cabrillo College. I studied jazz theory/improvisation at Cabrillo College.

    I don't listen to a lot of technical bassists. I most like players who laid down good, solid lines with great feel, like James Jamerson. I really like Paul McCartney's lines for their melodic sense. The only technical bassist I've spent a lot of time listening to is Jaco.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Composition, singing, guitar, cello, backpacking
