   ​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to my cyberspace home. 

For those of you who don't know me or what I am about,

I have come to be a Bass Player and Christian Musician in this

life's journey and am thankful to Jesus Christ for everything that

I have and his promise of everlasting life in God's wonderful 

heaven.  I am currently playing around Colorado Springs as a 

freelance musician.  I’ve been playing music since age 8 and

began playing bass in 1967.

I knew I was destined to play bass because I always loved

listening to "Big Noise from Winnetka" on my grandmother’s


     I consider myself a commercial and journeyman player. 

I started playing jazz and rock in the late 60s and am

self-taught on bass, working through the Carol Kaye method 

books, and have taken lessons  from Wrecking Crew bassist

Joe Osborn. I honed my skills in Los Angeles gaining real-world

experience on gigs from professional musicians and attending various jazz clinics. I’ve played on various demos, and on independent films. I've toured with groups to Europe, Japan, and South Korea. 

I enjoy playing all styles. I read music and can play from chord charts and lead sheets.  My goal is to never stop learning and continue to be the best that I can be. 

Enjoy life, be happy, healthy, and thank God for everything you have....even things that you don't have, and never stop reaching for the stars.
