ABOUT

I am an independent freelance drummer based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. My knowledge of music spans several genres including Jazz, Afro-Cuban(aka Salsa), Funk, Reggae, Blues, Country and Rock and Roll. Time, feel, groove and style are my main objective to hold in the "pocket".

I have studied at some of the finest institutions in the country including the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA, Berklee College of Music in Boston and received his Bachelors in music from the prestigious University of North Texas Jazz Studies program.
