ABOUT

28 years old and 21 years drumming. I started playing as soon as I could hold my father's drumsticks as a toddler. But lets be real, I didn't start actually practicing until 5 or 6. I am the drummer in two bands currently; Thy Antichrist (Black Metal out of Medellin by way of Dallas) and Monotheist (Tech-death out of Florida). Though I excel at extreme metal my passion is in Progressive music. However, I will play just about anything because all styles of music are an opportunity to learn. I've recorded around a dozen albums of various lengths and genres. From a Jazz EP to a Technical Death Metal album to a Pop-punk remix or even a Symphonic Rock demo; if it is well composed, I will play it. Alternatively, you can hire (read: pay) me and I will beat on a bongo drum in my underwear if that's what you want.
