ABOUT

I am a Musician (Drummer/Percussionist) who just moved to Madison, WI from Las Vegas, NV. I received a degree in Percussion & Drums from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I taught Collegiate & High School Drumline & Band in Las Vegas as well as played professionally. I've played several styles from Jazz-Rock-Pop-Hip Hop-Celtic & Latin professionally on the Las Vegas Strip. I am currently playing in a working cover band, but I am a full time musician so I am always looking for others to play with.

I play all percussion: Drum set, Aux. Percussion, Hand Drums, Electronic Percussion, & Marching/Orchestral Percussion.
