I'm a largely self taught (besides a couple of years of formal training in high-school) bassist originally from Ohio but now living in North Carolina. I draw influences from a wide array of sources, but tend to enjoy punk, blues, and funk the most when I'm playing (and I tend to reflect those influences no matter what I'm playing, much to the annoyance of a lot of people I've worked with). For the last ten years I've been playing a Fender Precision Deluxe that I absolutely adore and refuse to part with. Amp wise I use whatever I can get my hands on, which for some reason is usually Peavey.
Fender Precision Deluxe and whatever amp I managed to beg, borrow, or steal at the moment.
Mike Watt, Charles Mingus, Koffy Brown, Pte, Dee Dee Ramone, David Wm. Sims, Rika Mm'.
Previously a whole host of Punk/Noise bands that no one has ever heard of.
Currently an unnamed funk-blues project.
I design websites.
