ABOUT

* Now playing with Heard That, a 4-piece rock/pop/funk/other group in Bloomfield Hills, MI. See us at the website of (w w w.) heardthatband (.c o m) or on our FB page of ... /heardthatband.

Learned percussion (then drum set) through middle/high school, continuing into college playing in my schools' concert bands, marching bands, jazz bands, etc. Through those groups I was able to play almost any percussion instrument (including keyboard instruments) with confidence. Began learning guitar in college as well. Now I play regularly with the community concert band, but only occasionally in a rock band setting - playing drums, guitar, keyboard, and even a little singing with friends from work at local or work functions.* Would love any excuse to put my skills to use more and play in front an audience more!

I can both read sheet music and learn parts by ear (or come up with new/"improved" parts by feel), but above all I play to serve the music.
