Drummer of 25+ years. I've played Rock, Reggae, Latin, Country, Classic Rock, Metal, Oldies, Hip Hop, Pop and Jazz.

Classically trained through concert bands, orchestra, competitive marching band, indoor percussion, and a wide array of honors bands. I have played shows from firehalls, local clubs and bars, and headlined at festivals.

Currently I play with local Reggae/Rock band Private I. I've been drumming with them for 15 years. I also drum for That Oldies Band, and I instruct the drumline for Forest Hills Marching Band.
