ABOUT

I am a musician who plays for the music, not my ego. Also, I am musician who happens to be a drummer, rather than a drummer who happens to play with musicians.
I've played professionally and semi-professionally for the last 20 years. I recently got to back up Robin Mark, a world renown worship leader from Ireland. Saturday was a big gig of 10,000 people in attendance and Sunday had a very intimate setting of about 250. Neither of the size of crowd mattered, because it was about the music. I also teach lessons to about 20 students.

Influences

Every musician I have heard has influenced me in someway, whether good ("I want to try that sometime") or bad ("I never want to play like that"). My major influences are Herbie Hancock, James Taylor, Tord Gustavsen, Felix Mendelssohn and Steve Gadd

EQUIPMENT
