ABOUT

I started playing drums when I was 5, and began to really pursue it as my passion during my SR year of HS. From their I've been playing religiously from studio drumming to numerous other projects and bands. I am looking for like minded musicians who are passionate about playing, love to improvise, and enjoys the art of making/writing music.

I am fully trained in Jazz/Jazz-Fusion, Funk, Hip-Hop/R&B, Reggae, Alt/Rock, etc. But I specialize in live electronica from House,Trance, Jungle, Dub, DnB, and trip-hop. I am a very groove oriented drummer, and I enjoy weaving and blending musical genres together, jamming and improvising from one song to the next.....but all in all, I just love to play
