ABOUT

I've been a working percussionist for over 20 years, with significant time spent in studios as well as live venues.

I'm now playing w/Montana Rose, an alt-country/Americana group that plays primarily around south-central Montana. We stay fairly busy, although the winter months are a little slower than spring-fall.

Having played with so many musicians and bands during that time, I'm comfortable playing almost any genre.

I think of my role, in most situations, as someone who compliments the music and helps drive the dynamics.

Influences

The list of drummers and percussionists is too long to list. My inspiriation isn't limited to ethnic percussion - I find inspiring musicians in all types of music that go far beyond technique.
