I am a pro level drummer with over 35 years of experience. I have played everything from classic progressive rock, progressive metal, classic rock, country, simple indie rock/pop rock and fusion.

My strengths are that I listen to the other players and strive to make the entire ensemble flow and groove together. My time is excellent and I bring the energy. I read and have excellent rudiments. I can also play double bass. If you are looking for an easy going drummer, who is reliable and drug and alcohol free, hit me up!

ps: I also play guitar and bass. I can play with a click and have my own pro-tools studio at home. We can sequence, or do whatever the gig calls for.

I have alot! I started with the Beatles, Marshall Tucker, The Temptations,The Who, Yes and Rush and have been influenced by p-Funk, Dixie Dregs, Maceo Parker, Screaming Headless Torso's and Steely Dan. I also love Porcupine Tree, Kings X and Zac Brown and Sugarland. In general, I love music that has a pocket and makes people feel something. I have been heavily influenced by old Billy Cobham and Buddy Rich and grew up wood-shedding on Dave Weckl Linear playing and Rod Morganstein.
