I've been a freelance bassist for a while and have recently headed back to school for a degree in audiology. I have no intention of hanging up the bassist hat but rather hope to find ways to help other musicians to take care of their hearing and to cope with what issues that they may already have. I do mostly orchestral playing, but that is largely because that is what I get called for. I love electric bass as well as upright and have played rock, classical, jazz, latin, big band...whatever. I've played contrabass balalaika in a Russian folk ensemble but sadly don't own one. That's about it for now.
