    Influences and Teachers:
    The usual suspects along with many of you. A bass player/singer in the southeast named Randy Lewis (RIP) who played even though he was missing most of his right arm. Awesome dude. Some of the School of Rock kids here. Passionate, studious, creative, frickin' talented. As I recently got back into playing bass after playing flamenco guitar the past 12 yrs, I am finding new inspiration every week, and loving it.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Tech/Marketing Software development, fitness training, tennis, snow skiing, listening to passionate musicians.
