SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard.
I received my first drum-set at age 5 and have been drumming-on ever since, adding many types of percussion instruments to my tool-set through both Academic environments (jr high & high school bands, drum & bugle corps, and continuing in college on a music scholarship as a music major, although I changed it to engineering & science) and during my Professional career (playing in bands of various genres, including studio & live performance, with the shortest time period of 7 years with one group).
I’ve played Contemporary Christian, Rock/Pop, Classic Rock, Country, Jazz and Blues, however have the interests and abilities to reach out to many other types of music as well. Also have a lot of studio and live performance experience.
I’m in the life position of being able to devote myself full time to my music, and am searching for other musicians who also desire to either tour full-time or commit to multiple monthly gigs. I’m geographically flexible and willing to go wherever the right opportunity leads.
My approach to music is as a musician who has training in theory and composition, combining it with my engineering background, meaning that I study each song and build my percussion grooves and fills to complement the music to the fullest of my abilities, putting a lot of time, thought and energy into each piece.
My personality is easy going with a strong sense of commitment & drive. Definitely not into drama, unprofessionalism or egos. I appreciate music, love playing, and have a lot of fun while working hard towards improving my craft.
If my bio is of interest, I would appreciate your contact.

- Other Percussion:
Alesis DM10 MKII Pro with DW 9002 double kick pedal: A professional 10 piece digital set with dual-zone mesh heads (ultra quiet acoustically) and a pedal system used by many professional drummers (Carter Beauford of Dave Matthews Band for example). The Brain has 80 individual drum sets and more than 700 percussion sounds, providing a significant range of available sound options. My profile image is a stock photo of the kit.
I have a lot of experience on both electronic (Alesis & Roland digital sets) and acoustic drums. I prefer the Digital, as it provides greater control (volume, multiple sets & sounds, etc.), as well as greater sound clarity with the direct input connections, and mostly because of the significant percussion options available via the brain module & MIDI capability.
