Completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in contemporary music composition at Vancouver Community College
I was born and raised in Vancouver B.C. and have been playing bass guitar professionally for 20 years. Most recently I have been part of the Vancouver Community College music program working on completing my degree in composition for contemporary music while performing and composing as a member of the VCC gamelan ensemble (Gamelan Si Pawit) as well as the VCC Latin jazz ensemble. I specialize in rock, R&B, soul, jazz and world music but I am experienced in all styles of bass playing. I have toured throughout Western Canada, the USA and Southeast Asia and have performed in venues such as The Center for the Performing Arts (Vancouver), Richards On Richards (Vancouver), the ACT Theatre (Maple Ridge, BC), The Cloverdale Rodeo, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Surrey Fusion Festival and a house gig at Chilkoot Charlies (Anchorage, AK). I have appeared on CBC TV and the Shaw Cable network, including the talk show Urban Rush and have shared the stage with such Swollen Members, Leon Russell, Blue Oyster Cult, Jefferson Starship, Honeymoon Suite, Prism and Nick Gilder w/Sweeney Todd. I have also worked as a volunteer music teacher in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 2010/11 .
