I started playing when I was 12 and stopped when I was 32 to get a "real" job. For several years I was playing weddings, teaching private lessons, playing clubs and doing recording studio work. I took a long break when I had a child. Now I'm practicing again regularly and have gotten the rust off my chops.

I like playing jazz of all sorts, many forms of rock, funk, fusion, Latin, R&B and more. I'm looking to join a band for fun and to play out when possible. I'd also be interested in doing recording sessions as I read music well. I studied at the Haddonfield Convservatory and The Curtis Institute while in high school and at the conservatory at Oberlin. I spent years studying with the great avante garde jazz drummer Andrew Cyrille and some more time with Tommy Campbell.
