Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm currently with Southpaw out of Gainesville FL.I am looking to join a second band and would prefer it be a cover/tribute band.

I enjoy most all music from most music genres. I've had 9 years of piano lessons, so I understand music theory pretty well, I just enjoy drumming more. I've been playing drums since 1994.

I also have many years of marching percussion experience. I've marched on Mississippi State's Drumline and was captain for a couple of years. I take a very analytic approach to drumming and use my training in classical percussion and marching percussion to influence my technique behind the drumset.

On the professional side I am the CTO and co-founder of Babel Street (.babelstreet), a technology and software development company. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in Computer Science from Mississippi State University. There are approximately 100 cover songs that I have learned with previous bands, and can sit down and play them right now.
