I started playing bass at age 14 when my parents acquiesced to my desires to play bass - yes, from the outset, I loved bass - and got me a little Peavey amp and a Hondo All-Star P-Bass copy. Thirty years later, having played everything from metal to folk pop, I'm still learning, still loving the bass, and still enjoying everything that music has to offer. It's a constant evolution, the creative path...I've never played in a cover band, so I've never made much money at music, but it's not about that for me. Never has been. It's about that spark when something new happens.

By day, I'm a safety compliance officer with Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health - yes, an OSHA inspector. Have to pay the bills somehow, and I do it by ensuring workers in Kentucky are provided a safe workplace by their employers, and it's a wonderful job that I love; next best thing to writing and playing music.
