    My main thing that's going on for me is my 4 string bass, the Road Worn Fender Jazz. Absolutely, I can keep an ample beat and rhythm on the drums, and I know some of the standard chords on guitar. But, I'm a bassist at heart.

    My influences are based on people who can hold down the rhythm, with exceptional tone and play; a reminder of simple things for simple satisfaction. And then, there came the Alternative and Metal scenes of the nineties. There was so much aggression and prowess back then. Finally, a array wide of a timeline, of timeless bassists who contributed and revolutionized the role of a standard bassist.

    Seeking personal contentment, financial strength, and impeccable management of junctures. Overall, to find "my sound" :^p
