30yo drummer with 20 years of playing experience and 12 years of experience playing live around the northeast. Studied privately from age 10-20 and on my own since then. I've been playing in original bands of my own since I was 17yo (primarily indie rock) and currently still write and record with my band, seasonal (2015-present). I've written and recorded on 7 original projects (6 EPs, 1 LP since 2009. Experience playing to click track in live settings. Would love to join a jazz combo!
I also have equipment & a space for remote session work if you're looking for drum tracks/demos!

Style Influences: I grew up formally learning jazz/funk/fusion on the drumset before exploring rock and electronic music separately. I also formally studied concert drumming and drum corps music (snare).
Drumming Influences: Steve Jordan, JoJo Mayer, Benny Greb, Keith Carlock and Carter McClean (currently study with Carter).
Proficient in a variety of genres (rock, country, jazz, funk, blues, pop, r&b, hip hop, indie). Lately I've been playing along to a lot of down tempo r&b and hip hop, in addition to throwing on random pop songs to play along with. I've been playing/writing with my own original indie rock bands for the last 13 years, in addition to regularly filling in for a top 40s cover group since early 2020.
