ABOUT

I am a versatile drummer covering a wide spectrum of styles with classic rock influences but training in jazz, latin, and other styles. I can cover classic rock, country, southern rock, Americana/folk, blues, or R&B. Or I can set the pocket with some nasty funk or modern pop and dance music. Impeccable sense of time with a very strong ear and feel for playing with other musicians whether live or in the studio. I operate as a professional, always prepared.
