ABOUT

I'm a 29-year-old drummer originally from Boise, Idaho with over 10 years' experience recording, performing, and touring. I've worked many fill-in gigs, studio sessions, local performances, and a handful of tours through the western U.S. I'm looking primarily for live performances of any kind with bands, but am also more than open to joining new bands permanently and/or recording with acts of all genres where my chops are up to par.

EQUIPMENT

DW Clear Acrylic Collecter's Series 5-piece shells, mixed Remo drumheads, mixed Sabian cymbals, Pro-Mark drumsticks (Todd Sucherman signature) - my kit can be converted into an electronic hybrid as well, with the snare, toms, and kick using Drumtec heads and DDrum triggers and brain. This allows me to play at any volume for any gig/rehearsal as needed.
