ABOUT

Creative and solid drummer and percussionist with the ability to play varied styles of music. I enjoy collaboration with other musicians and practicing. Sometimes just getting together for a jam is cool too. Currently performing in the Chicagoland area with The B-Side Band, Bongo Straits and Second Time Around Classic Rock Band.
