ABOUT

Experienced pro drummer with excellent equipment. I am very focused and experienced in every genre with solid meter and dynamics.

Many years of experience in Denver, Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area both live and studio. I love to play rock, funk, blues, alternative, R&B, you name it.

I enjoy working with talented, hard working musicians with excellent chemistry and outstanding chops. I am available for session work.

NOTE: Currently working with Stef & The Groove out of Meridian, ID.

Influences

Too many to list. Lately really like what Chad Smith, Tal Bergman, Anton Fig, Jason Bonham and Richard Danielson are doing in various projects lately. Bill Bruford, Mike Mangini, MIke Portnoy, Chad Wackerman, Benny Greb, Terry Bozzio, Buddy Rich, Steve Gadd, Vinnie Colaiuta, Billy Cobham, Jeff Porcaro, Dave Weckl, Steve Smith, Simon Phillips and so many others influenced my direction. Listened and learned from all types of players from Taylor Hawkins to Omar Hakim (and everyone in between).

I enjoy playing all types of music, lately focused more on blues/rock oriented and/or rock projects to play original music or covers in the style of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa, Gov't Mule, Vintage Trouble, Coco Montoya, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Marcus King Band, vintage R&B, etc.
