ABOUT

I have been playing drums semi=professionally for 15 years, professionally for the last 7. I have excellent stage presence and sensitivity. My strengths are groove and pocket, with technicality and dynamics. I have had the honor of sharing the stage with many great musicians including Bassist Abraham Laboriel Sr., bassist Tony Brower of Dolly Parton fame, Guitarist Ted Wilson, Christian Songwriter, Musician and Dove Award-winner Billy Sprague, Dove Award-winner Crystal Lewis, and bassist "Sly" Simon of the Temptations fame. I have been recorded in mostly live situations, but have also spent some time in the studio as well. Appeared live on the KRFC Live at Lunch radio program backing Bryan Cowsert, playing live on the air. Have played in professional cover bands for corporate engagements, weddings and other private parties. Playing everything from old school blues to modern dance music. Prefer to play music that people can enjoy and get up and dance!
