Experienced pro-style drummer based in the New York City area with many years of on-stage & studio recording experience. Looking to join or form a band with musicians in the immediate New York City/Jersey City area with similar music experience. Current rehearsal/studio access at the Music Building NYC.
My music career began early in Boston playing with original & cover bands touring throughout New England.
After leaving the East Coast in 2004, I spent 7 years in the Chicago Music scene playing many venues & festivals throughout Chicago-land and the Midwest with the band “Pipe Dream”.
Since relocating to New York City in 2011, I supported Latin/Pop International Singer Melissa Otero During the 2014 Rising Tour (NY, WI, IL & OH) and recorded the track "Return" produced & mixed by 5x Grammy Winner Dave Clauss (Shakira, Maren Morris).
Most recently in 2020, I performed virtually with Melissa Otero at the Live at Heart Festival in Sweden.
Other New York City acts I have been associated with;
