What we play is life.
— Louis Armstrong
 
 

I played my first paying  gig as a bassist at 13 years of age, and I have been working steadily since then with jazz combos, big bands, orchestras, singers, choirs, musical theatre, and most recently in film. I’ve also as added to my experience with a number of studio and live recording sessions.

While I love playing in all these genres, my favourite setting is playing small group jazz with my friends, and I’ve had a vast experience playing this way, both as leader and as side-man. Still early on in my career, I have performed in the Vancouver, Toronto, Halifax, Ottawa and All Canadian Jazz festivals as well as many clubs, restaurants, and concert venues in those same cities. I want to continue to develop my reputation as first call bassist as well share my music with as many people as possible.
