    I'm a bass player, but I have a lot of outside interests. I love band management and local music industry issues. I teach business and I see the whole project of running a band as an exercise in leadership, management, and of course, musical growth.

    I moved onto upright bass in January, 2017. Seems to be going well, partly because I went with a 1/4 instrument which I play regularly at corporate, wedding, festival and show gigs. It has made the transition to upright much much easier. Have had many jazz gigs with it, and recently was hired as a sideman for a theater gig with a very accomplished singer. Been a wonderful experience that has shown me the many virtues of playing a shorter scale upright when your body rejects the 3/4 albatross..
