ABOUT

Greetings! I am a drummer in the Southbay area of Los Angeles. I have been playing for over ten years. I have spent some time away from music, and am looking to knock the ring rust off by getting out there, and playing with some local musicains. I am almost completely intuitive with my playing. Meaning I don't read music, and I learned to play by playing.

I like to play very tight, punchy, and groovey. I can be a very aggressive player, but I know when to chill. I am very big on dynamics, am technically savy, but I am always trying to cater my performance to the song, and be tasteful, while still trying to keep things exciting, or at the very least, interesting.

EQUIPMENT

I am very into being a drummer, so I am always buying, and upgrading my gear. That being said, I would concider my equipment as Semi-pro. I have a six piece Gretsch Renown kit(all maple), with Sabian xsr cymbals. I keep my drums tuned, and well maintained. I also have mics, and a little bit of recording gear.
