What do you do for a living?      

I live by air, water, food, and love. Ha. As for working, I’d say I make people smile, professionally.

How would you describe what you do?

I create musical compositions for artists. I engineer recording sessions. I mix songs.  I teach bass, piano, and composition (by way of music programming). I offer performances, both live and in studio, on bass, guitar, keys, & voice. Mostly, I talk & and encourage people.

What does your work entail?

My work takes a great deal of ‘people skills’.  I’m always interacting with different personality types & seeing people on good days as well as bad. I use music to lift people’s energy. If it’s a more intimate setting like the studio or my office, it will entail talking, asking serious questions, and making jokes in order to enhance the results of learning or recording. If it’s on stage, it will entail me physically demonstrating through my movements; ‘feeling a song in my bones’ and of course playing as many proper notes as possible to encourage the listener/viewer to be a part of my/our experience on stage.  My work also involves tons of homework, lots practice time, lots of bettering myself to produce better results, & lots of learning about people to evaluate how they intake and hold information. To be optimal, for me, involves sweating and working hard when no one is around so that when it’s game time, there are as few glitches on my part as possible. People expect me to always be on my game; to always deliver excellent results.
