ABOUT

Drummer and percussionist for much of my life. Have a day job but have kept drumming and gigging throughout.

Bass player (new passion, but budding).

Love music that has, or needs, a groove (with breathing room, as needed), whatever the genre. Understand serving the music, not the musician.

Working in studio when possible, creating loops, samples, and electronic grooves when the spirit moves me, gigging when possible, thrashing when appropriate, refining always.
