From Northeast Pennsylvania, I began my musical journey at the early age of five after seeing the legendary Buddy Rich on a television program. Seeing Buddy play planted the seeds in me that would eventually bring me to be a powerful force behind the kit... I love performing!
Being completely self-taught, I possess rudimental and independent ability on the kit. I had to be able to play and read notation as good as the drummers I listened and looked up to ... and that required many painstaking hours of 'seemingly' boring practice routines.
I'm also well versed in lighting and video production, live sound production, and recording production.
The repertoire of music I have and continue to perform includes funk, rock, jazz-rock, classical rock, alternative rock, progressive rock/metal, R & B, Blues, Top 40, and the list goes on. I continue to perform in many musical situations both live and studio.
I have performed with, engineered for, opened shows for, and performed in shows with groups such as Grand-Fun-Alley, Metropolis (Dream Theater Tribute), Veiled Exposure, Haji, Island, Sleeper, Peach, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Who's "TOMMY", Jay And The Americans, Steppenwolf, Ken Hensley, Leslie West & Mountain, Pat Benatar, Beth Hart, Marty Stuart, Locomotion, Uriah Heep, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Chubby Checker, Classics Four, Diesel, Donny Iris, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and many more.
