ABOUT

I've been playing drums since I was 10 years old and have a degree in music theory, performance and audio engineering. Though I have toured with and played in many groups performing everything from Americana-folk and slam-grass to progressive metal and classic rock, as well as a hired hand for Broadway musical productions, my passion is jazz/funk/soul.

Influences

Great songwriting can be found in all genres, but you'll see these groups most played in my Spotify playlist: The New Mastersounds, The Meters, The Sound Stylistics, The Poets of Rhythm, Grant Green, Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Breakestra, Dumpstaphunk, and so many more groove, funk and soul masters. I love Zappa and various other jazz, classical, pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop and folk artists. I also think George Harrison is the best post-Beatles Beatle...so there's that.
