ABOUT

24-year-old drummer available for sessions, fill-ins, or joining a band

I have been performing and practicing heavily for 8 years and have a unique voice behind the kit heavily rooted in rock with experience as a member of a plethora of small local bands, an occasional fill-in, musical theater pits, and a member of two college jazz ensembles (big band and quartet/trio).

Especially proficient with Latin rhythms and double bass playing and not afraid of odd meters. I can learn songs quickly and unless otherwise noted, learn songs as closely to the recording/demo as possible. Powerful chops but not against playing simple time.

I am based in Wilton, CT and go to school part time in Riverdale, NY in the spring. I am graduating in May and don't have a lot of classes left to take, so my schedule is pretty open starting in December/January.

other info: drug and alcohol free; don't care too much of other people's choices, but I do not partake.
