ABOUT

I have been playing drums since I was a Freshman in High School, playing in the Marching and Jazz Bands. Played in a few garage bands during my high schools days but once I got into college, I didn't play as much, however, I always had a kit in my house to keep my skills up. 14 years ago, I had an opportunity to start playing again, first with a Sacramento group called the Newzmakers we then transformed into what is now known as Group Therapy (.GroupTherapyMusic). From our GT Band, we formed an additional tribute band known as Elvis and the Experience (s://elvissings). In both bands, we have appeared, on television and in person, all around the Sacramento Region and the Bay Area. I love playing music and being on stage. It's a way of expressing myself that really says, "this is me!" My one regret is that I didn't get this serious at a younger age. Who knows where I would be now! (s://./musician/117833)
