I'm the lead guitarist/keyboardist for the metal band Incriminating Silence, though I started out as the bassist. Being a bassist primarily, my styles include metal (thrash, death, progressive, -core), rock, blues, funk, and a sprinkling of jazz; on guitar, I stick to metal and classic rock. My primary guitar influences are Marty Friedman and John Petrucci; my main bass influences are Steve Harris and Frank Bello.
