    Influences and Teachers:
    I draw a lot of influence from a variety of electronic artists such as Baths, Blvck Ceiling and Toro Y Moi. I am finding that The Bad Plus is very influential on me of recent. I grew up listening to a lot of aggressive, noisy, mathcore such as The Number 12 Looks Like You and Arsonists Get All the Girls. Many of the 'classic' influences that you see around here such as Jaco Pastorius and Victor Wooten also helped shape my current approach to bass.

    Coffee, whiskey, audio production, electronic music, graphic design, vinyl, downhill unicycling
