    Influences and Teachers:
    Several bass players around the Bloomington area, some who I now consider peers, lent me advice and criticism from my early days of playing, as well as served as models of technique, tone, and taste.

    My influences include rock, punk, R&B, jazz, and funk players, as well as basslines and grooves of EDM genres such as house music and electroswing.

    Popular names include Jamerson, Jaco, Geddy, Jack Bruce, JPJ, Entwistle, Larry Graham, Bill Wyman, John Deacon, Chris Wolstenholme, and Victor Wooten.

    Less known but equally valuable are Jim Creeggan of Barenaked Ladies, Joe Dart of Vulfpeck, Ron Blair of Tom Petty's band, Michael League of Snarky Puppy, Bernard Edwards of Chic, Mattie Safer & Gabriel Andruzzi of The Rapture, Brandon Flowers & Mark Stoermer of the Killers, Chris Edwards of Kasabian,
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Video games, music history/culture (ethnomusicology), technology (I'm an IT guy)
