ABOUT

I have loved the drums and have loved being a drummer my entire life. Cut my teeth in the late 80's into the 90's, learning to play along with all of my favorite bands from that era, so there is definitely an influence in my playing style that results. Also an experienced backing vocalist and occasional lead vocalist. Recently accepted an offer to become part of hard rock/metal band "Praise the Fallen" out of the South Bend, Indiana area as drummer and backing vocalist. (https://www.ptfband.com/) You can find our music on our website, youtube, apple music, and other sources. Take a minute and check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Influences

In no particular order...american thrash, the BEATLES, the mighty Zep, Sabbath, A7X, Dream Theater, AIC, Volbeat, anything Dave Grohl has even thought about doing, ever, the entirety of the "seattle sound" of the 90's, basically anything with some soul, some loud guitars, some shredding, lots of drums, addictive melody and vocal harmonies. Yeah, all of that.

EQUIPMENT

Several drum kits, a couple roland effect pads, guitar, bass buitar, complete pro-level PA with subs, mains, wedge monitors, 16 channel mixer, rolling rig rack, equalizer, three power amps, and an in-ear monitor system. Also have several vocal mic's and stands. Complete mic system for my drums with a smaller mixer used to sub-mix drums so that only one channel in main mixer is needed for entire drum kit.

Climate controlled rehearsal space attached to the side of my barn. (see pic)
