I started studying percussion in school band when I was 9. I've been drumming with gigging bands since I was 15 - alternative, hard rock, pop, reggae, hip hop, soul, funk, covers, etc. I spent most of my 20s touring with a few very different bands on the east coast.
From bands and session work I've done 25+ recordings; mostly albums, a few singles. Recorded in Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Nashville and New York City.

I also have audio and video production skills and experience. I make a living with photography and video, so my schedule is flexible for music projects.
If your band is not marketable or your singer's voice doesn't cut it, let's not waste each other's time.

I'm playing a very syncopated 16th note beat with ghost notes over an arpeggiator with live bass & guitars. I wish the arp and sweeping phasers weren't so loud in the mix. I did not produce this one.
