How did you come to play bass? I was going to play guitar in my church’s praise band until I heard the guitarist they had. He was great so, I borrowed a bass from a friend. The rest is history.

What’s a lesson you’ve learned along the way? Stay in the pocket. Connect the dots.

What are your musical goals? To retire from my day job and go to work playing in a jazz band at Disneyland.
