ABOUT

A well-trained percussionist, who has been formally trained in classical music, jazz, rock, contemporary music, and additional styles. Has taken music and percussion theory courses to compliment my percussion ability, so I can easily read sheet music (I actually played trumpet as well). Can easily adapt to most musical styles. Can read music charts and transpose if necessary. My beginnings and early instruction in drum corps provide me with the ability to perform interesting fills and provide an unique stylistic performance. I have played with acts up and down the east coast and in the west. I am dependable, passionate, and driven to play to provide the heartbeat for the music!

Influences

Libery Devito of the backing band for Billy Joel contributed the most to my style, as well as the late Jeff Pocaro...Steve Gadd also influenced my desire to learn how to become a "pocket drummer". . My early instruction in jazz was highly influenced by Buddy Rich and his books of instruction. In short-I have been taught by some of the best instructors to be found, and the evidence is heard in my playing.
