ABOUT

I’ve been a professional drummer in the KC MO area since 1990. My focus was initially on strait ahead and avant-garde jazz. During the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to learn and play different styles and am always working to expand and improve.

Influences

I’m influenced in some way or another, by anything I listen to. My first formal training was in orchestral percussion. My influences have been the great jazz drummers, traditional through current. I’ve also been very inspired by Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Funk… Any style I hear as being performed well with with sincerity and authenticity.
