Originally From: Dayton, Ohio
Years Played: 37 years

Influences/Favorite Players: I've been influenced by so many people. As far as bass players, I guess I would have to say Geezer Butler and Berry Oakley. I've also been influenced by some great guitar players like Jimmy Page, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, & Warren Haynes. Other influences would include Chuck Berry, Arthur Lee, and Ray Davies.

Most Memorable Music Moments: Creating the “Hands of Time” Album – from initial idea sessions to all the recording sessions – fantastic fun – an amazing experience! Being a part of the Southbound experience has far exceeded my expectations. Now that the band is whole again, I’m looking forward to creating our next album and expanding our catalog of cover songs, and sharing all of it with our current loyal fans and friends, and gaining many more new fans and friends. I'm very blessed to be "living the dream!"
