Experienced drummer/percussionist currently playing in a group that is focused on actually playing music in a no-drama filled environment. It's all really about putting out a product that your listening audience will enjoy.
Comfortable in virtually any setting, I've played in everything from "dive bars" to fully packed stadiums to musical theater gigs to doing studio work.
Classically trained (degreed in music composition).
