This is a huntsman/giant crab spider (family Sparassidae) - http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/urban/spiders/giant_crab_spider.htm

Thank you so much- I read the link you posted and it said these guys have spots on legs but in my pic they really look like bands or stripes- is it common for the dots to appear as stripes at a glance?

Spiders, like humans, can exhibit quite a bit of individual variation in appearance...
