ABOUT

Seasoned pro drummer near Corvallis. Fluent in all styles and genres. Experienced in Live, Studio, Touring situations. I can work from charts, Real book, any type of recording, whatever you prefer. I grew up on Jazz and Big Band so I have a great natural swing feel and "big ears" for creative tasteful improv. Bottom line is I can play anything the music needs.

Always looking for a project that's going somewhere with great players making great music that's fun and that I can be proud to be a part of. That would include good live gigs, studio,and touring.
