ABOUT

I'm a live and studio drummer currently building my own home drum studio known as SmudgeBeats. I have been playing live for about 8 years and recording for the past 4 years. Due to many different life events I have had to shift the amount of music I play. But as of now I have made music even more of a priority than ever before. I'm looking to collaborate and build some awesome relationships. I play in a funk/pop band right now in the upper suburbs of Chicago (Lake County). I play at different churches as well.
