Greetings friends and welcome to my website! I am a musician from Northeast Ohio that plays in multiple bands around the area. My main instruments are bass, guitar, mandolin and pedal steel guitar. Most of you probably know me from playing with Hey Monea, Match City and Trailer Park Ninjas.
I set up this website to network with musicians, students, bands, studios, booking agencies and people that work in the music industry. I play with all of the groups listed on this site on a regular basis as well as a lot of fill in gigs with other acts. I try to take video on my GoPro at most of my shows and post them on here and my YouTube channel to have fresh content. If you are interested in booking an event, lesson or would like to use me in the studio just shoot me a message through my “Contact” link.
I have been very fortunate to work with some very talented people in my career and it has allowed me to travel the world and meet all sorts of great friends. In 2012 my band Hey Monea opened up for the legendary Bruce Springsteen at Hyde Park in London in front of 70,000 people. Other acts on the bill included Paul Simon, Soundgarden and John Fogerty. That would lead the group to signing a record deal with Hard Rock Records and record the album Cheap Souvenirs with Grammy award winning producer Dennis Herring.
I have also performed on many festival cruise ship such as The Rock Boat featuring Sister Hazel, Gavin Degraw and Bare Naked Ladies. 311 Cruise with 311, Dirty Heads and Rebelution. Kid Rock Chillin the Most featuring Kid Rock, Run DMC and Blackberry Smoke. VH1 Best Cruise Ever with Train, The Script and Verticle Horizon. Rombello featuring Michael Franti and G Love and the Special Sauce. The Live Loud Cruise with Bronze Radio Return. Other groups that I have shared the stage with on dry land include Twenty One Pilots, Goo Dolls, Gin Blossoms, Doobie Brothers, O.A.R., Blood, Sweat and Tears and O Town.
