How did you start making music?
I started playing the bass when I was around 15, picked it up quickly and soon surpassed my teacher at the time. I learned to play by ear and started teaching myself by reading tabs and looking at lessons online. I got into my first real band around my late 20s and then joined Hindsight where we’ve travel all over the country (USA). We also play with some of the biggest names in the rock and metal scene in our own market of Houston and around Texas.
Tell us 3 things you must have in the studio?
I have to have my Ampeg bass cab and head.
MTD (Michael Tobias Design) 5 string bass
My Bartolini bass pickups.
Who is your favorite artist?
That is a very hard question to answer as I love so many artist, but I have always been a HUGE fan of Linkin Park (RIP Chester).
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I love spending time with my rescue dogs (Winston & Cleveland) and hanging out with my girlfriend.
Do you find it hard to have a relationship as a musician or as a model? Or both?
It can be pretty very hard if you do not keep yourself grounded. Sometimes we tend to keep people around that we should get rid of and keeping those people around causes division with the one you love. Take it from me, your girlfriend/wife should always come first or you’ll find out really quick that those friends are never around when you need them.
How do you stay inspired when you wanted to give up?
My girlfriend Jessica is a huge inspiration that helps keep me motivated. Also, everyone who leaves a message on how they are inspired or motivated to keep going.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Living in California acting and modeling.
You are also a competitive fitness model and a brand ambassador, what brands do you represent?
I am and here are the brands I am honored to be a part of:
Swole O’Clock, Gripped Fitness Audio, Affliction Clothing, Evogen Nutrition, Smoothie King, Egg Whites International, Promixx, Bodybuilding.com, Harbinger Fitness, Icon Meals, 6 Pack Fitness, Eminence Speakers, Bartolini pickups, MTD Kingston Bass, and Clayton USA guitar picks.
How did you start modeling?
I got into modeling as a teen when I started doing a few runway shows for Dillard’s and a fashion show that Baylor University was putting on for their fashion department.
Tell us what are you into besides music and modeling?
I am also a really big nerd and love comics, going to comic conventions.
