I have been in this business and played music since I was 12. I left Sweden for America, worlds away at 18 years old, and made it in a business that so many people are working so hard to break into. I have great ideas, empathy and compassion for others. Are you stuck and need to remove that block? Coaching means inspiring, encouraging, offering ideas, life experience, and real stories. My knowledge and journey has a lot to offer.
I am a veteran bass player with over 30 years of experience touring and recording with platinum selling billboard bands such as, Lita Ford, SteelHeart, Lizzy Borden, Lynch Mob and From Classical to Rock.
