    I was introduced to the playing of the bass when I was in high school. My teacher encouraged me to play a bass part for the jazz band; and so it began. At that time I was more dedicated to playing guitar, but I eventually lost all interest in musicianship when I went to college. A few years ago, I had the mushroom trip of a lifetime that opened my third eye to the meaning of life and I rediscovered my purpose and interest in being a musician. I picked up where I left off with guitar - acquired a nice assortment of vintage and modern analog gear and a nice modded Stratocaster, but not soon after, I found a cheap Yamaha bass - my first bass. Very quickly I learned to respect bass as a class of instrument all on its own, and I started to admire it for its obscurity and potential for experimentation and innovation. Through the past few years, I have re-discovered music through this newfound perspective, and I came across different types of music that inspired me to join a band. After a few frustrating shortcomings with local cover bands who did not share my vision, I took a divergent path all on my own and have since begun focusing on writing my own music.
