I am a Gemini. My Castor had a successful career in advertising and film industry. Pollux picked up a bass guitar when he was a kid and never put it down.
All I have learned in my double life has found its way into the basses I build. And I have learned this: We all run the risk of becoming our own very limit.
Training, culture, techniques, available tools and material, workflow, logistics, allegiance to a certain craft, tradition, ambition, greed and whatever else defines one's style can eventually become a powerful censor that filters out fresh, powerful new ideas and turns us into machines.
To avoid falling in the trap, I steer clear from doing the same thing more often than necessary. I let the core idea that lies beneath every project take control of building style, materials, technique and creative process. She is the only queen I swear my allegiance to.
The next big thing always hide under that stone waiting to be turned over.
My menthor and friend, Jeffrey builds of some of the
finest acoustic and classic guitars out there.
