ABOUT

I am a drummer that plays all styles; from metal to jazz to fusion to latin and funk. I am looking to join or help start up a band that wants to push the envelope.....to play music that incorporates different ideas and fuses them together in unique ways. I like the idea of having open sections that groove well, while also have very mapped out transitions and other sections that are sonically interesting.....with musicians who are technically adept at a wide array of styles and who aren't afraid of challenges. I dig playing great grooves while also messing around with odd time signatures and polyrhythms.

As an example.....having the ability to play songs that are more jazz oriented, say with an upright bass, and then turning around and melting people's faces with some heavy avant garde jazz/fusion/metal.....I love the idea of having an open pallet of styles to draw from, while occassionally mixing them together in interesting ways....but while also having a strong identity at the same time and giving credence to those who inspire us.

I have chops and groove, can play in odd time signatures and am technically proficient. I just need a vehicle to plug into with musicians who are serious, disciplined, and are looking to create something original and unique.
