30 plus yrs of playing drums / percussion. Currently playing in a popular band in the Merrimack valley area performing 40-50 shows a year ranging from Motown favorites to current tunes. I've definitely have had the pleasure & privilege to have met and played with some of the areas best seasoned musicians the last few years, I've def learned a lot from them and value my playing that much more, I'm always dedicated to every project I'm involved in. With a good reputation known to be very easy to work with, never late and professional.

I'd have to say that my biggest influence in music drumming is my father, who performed as a professional drummer for 44 years. He brought my interest in music at a very early age of 6 yrs old. As I progressed through the years I learned the values of dynamics and performance in my playing. As far as band drummer influence I'd have to say that Bill Gibson drummer ( Huey Lewis and the news )
