ABOUT

I've heard people around saying "drummers just hit stuff, they're not REAL musicians" and if you believe this...that's messed up man...

Life-long dream is to commit, tour, change the world, and make someone feel the way I did when I got obsessed with music.

I'm looking to collaborate with inspiring musicians who truly understand their role as musicians. I'm learning guitar and bass for my own writing, but I know you can do better! I just love it when everyone perfectly fills a role and we can all bring our unique skills, influences and flavors together. I'm looking to expand in my taste and my style - I LOVE to rock out, and I will, but I also love exploring new influences and tying them together. I'm down to play whatever!

I have a college level education in music theory and harmony, so I know a bit more than your average "guy who just hits things". I'm also a former member of the world renowned Shrine of the Ages Choir and sang Acapella in college. I have very deep understanding and love of music, time, and harmony, and I want to play with people who are the same so we can grow at the same level.
