ABOUT

My love for the drums began at 8 years old and has continued for 4 decades. I've studied with some amazing teachers who helped me to shape my direction as a player in my early years. I began teaching in my early 20's at the Long Island Drum Center and in my early 30's I became a high school music teacher in Brooklyn, NY.
I am currently looking for recording projects in need of a solid and reliable drummer.

EQUIPMENT

I have two drum kits. One is a vintage Yamaha Tour Custom and the other is a Mapex M-Birch. I also have a collection of Zildjian cymbals of various sizes that compliment one another beautifully. I have my own set of microphones and I am endorsed by a great company, Drum Muff.
