I started playing music in my early teens, learning the bass from my father.  After studying at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, I received a Bachelor of Music from New York University in 2005.  I have played with a wide variety of groups and in many genres, including the Avett Brothers and Langhorne Slim.  I currently live in Nashville, Tennessee where I record, produce, and perform.
