    I'm a bass player, but I have a lot of outside interests, such as bands that allow me to play two instruments in the same song. I love band management issues. I teach business and although I ran a small business in my early twenties, I see the whole project of running a band as an exercise in leadership, management, and of course, musical growth.

    I recently moved onto the Upright Bass and have had two gigs with it. Seems to be going well, partly because I went with a smaller than 3/4 instrument which I play regularly at home. It has made the transition to upright much much easier.
