ABOUT

I"ve been playing music professionally for 18 years now. I grew up in the NYC area, and studied at Drummer's Collective in Manhattan, and received a Music Ed Degree from Kean U in NJ. I have mostly played in the Northeast region: from NYC down to Washington DC, playing mostly rock and pop gigs. I have played jazz on a Cruise Ship up in Alaska. I went on tour with a rock band (Matthew Curran Band), opening up for Deep Purple and The Scorpions. I have played some Corporate gigs in Las Vegas and in Arizona. I did the premier tour of "Shout!", a Broadway show, across America. I lived up in Rochester, NY for awhile, playing various Music Theaters, along with many blues gigs, and played drums for an alternative rock band. I now live in Nashville; looking to connect with great musicians and play this entire region, and of course tour. I take music very seriously, dedicating most of my time to practicing. I would love to play Country music here, as well as Americana, Folk, R&B, Pop, Rock, Blues, and Classic Rock music.
