ABOUT

I'm always searching for fearless improvisers who are confident in performance situations, who are open to different styles and interested in pulling strangers toward our sound.

I can be meticulous in the studio if required, or I can record many variations on a theme until we find what is needed.

I also love coming up with a quick idea and spending a couple hours developing it, to record a sketch (similarly to an artist quickly penciling out an idea into a notebook). I would like to find collaborators, whether in person or worldwide over the interwebbing. Once we have five or six sketches, we could perform them in front of an audience and see where they take us.

I also learn quickly and enjoy subbing to temporarily fill a drum chair. Last minute? No problem.

My purpose is to speak through the instrument: drums are my daily meditation. Experimenting, searching, creating and playing are my passions.
