ABOUT

I've been playing, gigging and recording in the South Florida for years and I am looking for a working/touring or soon to be working situation that calls for an in-the-pocket, groove oriented drummer (solos are not a problem if required, however). I am well versed in most popular styles of music (including Latin, Jazz, Funk, etc.) and I am comfortable and experienced at picking up a group's full set on the fly or after minimal rehearsal. I am gig-ready as soon as you call. Always on time, professional, dependable and with a good attitude.
