ABOUT

I've been playing most of my life and I love it. Just can't seem to get enough. If your looking for Power and Energy, I got it. Prefer to play the hard stuff, as long as it sounds good, and still enjoy playing the easy stuff, too, as long as the music is good and the tempo is smooth. I can play the odd time signatures, and am very aware of the dynamic changes that help give a composition its mood and atmosphere. Can read and write some myself, also with a good knowledge of the keyboards and music theory. Even though my expertise is in my drum kit, I consider myself a well rounded percussionist, capable of playing all styles of music.
