I am an attorney by day, but that's really just my "backup gig" in case this whole "musician thing" doesn't work out. ;^) I was been blessed with the opportunity to write freelance reviews for Guitar World's Bass Guitar Magazine, and I contributed regularly from the Spring of 2006 up until Bass Guitar Magazine's demise. This was, in itself, a dream come true, and an opportunity for which I am truly grateful. But this was a stepping stone to bigger and better things, and I am now the Editor-in-Chief of Bass Gear Magazine ( Our first issue came out in August of 2008, and we are now the leading bass review magazine, worldwide. Of course, on the topic of my true blessings, I have a wife and two kids, all of whom I greatly adore, so my time for music/bass/songwriting/performing, and yes, even the occasional practicing, is not infinite. Nevertheless, I really enjoy my time spent playing bass, writing and recording songs, and just getting to "play" with all that great gear! This blog is a result of these external interests...

If you are wondering why all the posts on this blog are so out of date, it is because I have been devoting the lion's share of my "free time" to Bass Gear Magazine. This is a magazine which I founded after Guitar World stopped publishing Bass Guitar Magazine (I wrote reviews for them prior to their demise).

Bass Gear Magazine is available in both a high quality print form and also an online digital form (for free!). We have some excellent staff, and we perform out own independent, detailed bench testing. Check us out at
