    Former Faculty member of Penn State University. I taught Jazz there.
    I work both as an acupuncturist and as a musician. I am Classically trained on the double-bass and spend a good portion of my playing time on Upright bass, but I do mostly Orchestral work and jazz, along with general dance band gigs. I use the electric a lot with show work as well, and of course freelance with local bands when I get the opportunity. I have never played in a Rock and Roll band, though I have played Rock in local variety groups. I only freelance except for regular orchestral work.
