My professional career extends back 30 years, starting with a degree from the University of Miami, but I’m first and foremost a bass player. My career has been divided equally between live performance, studio session and education. As a member of “The Circle,” a Florida-based contemporary jazz group, I performed in a variety of large venues including doing opening concerts for Hall and Oates, Chicago, Rod Stewart and George Benson. Other performance credits span a variety of styles including jazz dates with Frank Gambale, Dee Daniels and Jimmy Haslip, as well as pop/rock artists such as Ellen MacIlwaine, Shari Ulrich and Paul Janz. The list of studio session dates include jingle and live broadcast for CBC, plus numerous album productions in the role of player/producer. Currently, I arrange and write for the 10 piece R&B group “What It Is."
