ABOUT

I'm currently in a reggae band and funk band but we are not that busy. Both groups have been around a while and we do have gigs lined up especially for summertime but I have extra time to meet up to collaborate/jam/write and maybe eventually gig. I went to Berklee from 2005-2009 and have been gigging and teaching drum set since then for a living. I'm really just looking to meet up with new musicians that hopefully I have some chemistry with and start a new project with, and have time to meet up on a regular basis to create original music. I'm into funk, rock, reggae, blues, r & b, jazz, soul, any sort of funk/soul/jazz fusion and some hip-hop/rap.
