Influences

Initially trained under jazz/session drummer Dan Kish in NYC. Playing all varieties of music including Contemporary Rock, Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, Americana/Folk, Swing, Musical Theater

My drumming influences come from various styles, including:
* N.D. Smart (w/Leslie West)
* Corky Laing (w/Mountain)
* Doug Clifford (CCR)
* Ed Shaughnessy (Tonight Show Orchestra w/Doc Severinson)
* Ray Cooper (everybody's drummer and percussionist)
* Buddy Rich (legend)
* Animal (Muppet)
* Top Secret Drum Corps

This resulted in a very dynamic "in-the-pocket" style. Not every song needs to be played like "Purple Haze"
