    Hobbies and Interests:
    Is there anything else...?
    Formerly a full-time player, active from 1994-2001. These days, just a fairly busy guy working a Monday thru Friday job, meanwhile trying to maintain a decent rep as a "weekend warrior" bassist. Never experienced "the burnout"... I still love to play, and gigging with a wide variety of ensembles around Southwest Virginia affords me a way to keep the chops up, and a means for acquiring really nice gear I could never afford as a musician.


    Still bucking for that Thomastik-Infeld $tring endorsement...
