My first introduction to music came in the 5th grade as a trombonist in my school band but evolved quickly to stringed instruments a few years later. That led to picking up the bass guitar and playing in classic and progressive rock bands for the next three decades including long stints in the Twin Bullet, Second Nature, and Thick As Thieves bands. Along the way guitars entered the picture leading to multiple studio projects and classical guitar studies at the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver. I have a love for the classical guitar but I remain a rocker at heart with a true love for the bass guitar and vocals. I’m thrilled and honored to now be a member of Aural Deception.
