ABOUT

I am a very live performance focused drummer. Heavily experienced in playing live shows of various crowd sizes. I'm known for being fairly quiet and reserved off stage and near Animal from the Muppets level energetic onstage. I believe that if I am not exhausted after playing a set, I didn't do my job. Stage performance and presence are VERY important to me, both from my own performance and from my fellow band mates. I'm a quick study, able to learn many songs in a short period of time for established / cover / tribute groups. Most of my focus outside of stage play is on tight play (in the pocket, as they say) and timing.
