ABOUT

I started playing drums in high school and It’s been about a year since I played and rehearsed with a band on semi regular basis.
And over a decade since I was in a band I was really excited and serious about.
At that time, although talented musicians, we were still not mature enough to overcome the typical obstacles and dramas of an aspiring and rising new band

Now, at 43, with wife and two beautiful daughters and new life experiences, I’m hungry to start creating again. Music has been always a major part of my life. And I wanna give back to it.
Finding a fellow musician or two I can relate to artistically as well as personally, eventually collectively becoming an instrument and vehicle through which music and songs can manifest itself again.

In the past 10 years I’ve been mostly jamming with individuals, practicing staying present, practicing listening to others, broadening my mind and exploring new musical spaces, landscapes or genres. And it has been pretty rewarding and humbling experience yielding some great musical moments.

But now, I feel ready to start writing and crafting interesting and storytelling pieces again.
I have a decent live playing / monitoring / recording setup.
And the inspiration and motivation is there.
Once a week a few hour quality session at first.. To see where things can go.
Just need some co-pilots for this trip. Adventurers for this journey...
