ABOUT

Hey. I am a lifelong drummer now based in the Hudson Valley. Played in a bunch of bands over the years, mostly rock. My last band was a new wave band in the early to mid 2010's. We sounded most like The Church. Recorded an EP and a full album. Were signed briefly. Played a mix of acoustic and electric drums. Played Brooklyn & Manhattan mostly with some other East Coast gigs. Best venue every played, Irving Plaza. Worst venue every played, too many to list. Took a hiatus from music for a bit to start my company. Now I am back.

Influences

Mostly rock/new wave/pop/metal. Grew up listening to classic rock and metal, then ventured into "college rock" and new wave. Watched both Headbangers Ball AND 120 Minutes.

Drummer influences run the gambit from Steve Adler to Jeff Porcaro, Jon Farriss to Tony Thompson. Really like Simon Phillips, Steve Smith, Stewart Copeland, Keith Moon. People have said I have a Dave Grohl vibe but I can't play that hard anymore.
