ABOUT

I studied music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, the US Naval School of Music at the Little Creek Amphibious Base in Norfolk, VA, and earned a bachelor of science in music education at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA. I also spent two years studying with Jazz musician and educator Joe Morello at his studio in West Orange, N.J.

My career began in the U.S. Army Band at Ft. Monmouth, NJ, playing timpani, marching snare, mallet percussion, and drum set. My experience and knowledge of music afforded the opportunity to work for such artists as, The Cat Island Blues Band, Rosey and the Naturals, Krypton City Blues Revue, Andy Roberts, Larry Koch, Joe Mixon, Texas Son, Beulah Mae, Automatic Slim, Julie Schreiber, Nate Myers and the Aces, as well as many others.

In 1999 and 2000, I worked with Grammy nominee, 7-time Handy Award nominee, and blues legend; Big Jack Johnson. This gig took him all over the US, Canada, and Europe. I also toured the Caribbean, the Panama Canal Zone, the Pacific Coast of Mexico, and Alaska’s Inside Passage, as a show band musician on Princess and Celebrity Cruise lines.

I am also a member of the Reading AFM 135-211.
