Quick Bio:
Semi-retired pro drummer (87' to present)
Live performance and studio covering many genres.
Southern, NH - Rockingham County.

I've always been happiest and most at home in an atmosphere open to at least some improvisation and interpretation, no matter the genre. I love to explore and continually evolve, so approaching music from a premeditated standpoint is contrary to what I personally enjoy most about drumming.

Some of the past bands I have performed and recorded with, in no particular order: Tom Dixon Band, Fortune, Love Stained Rhythm, Erick Preston's Purple Haze, BarrNone, "The Painkillerx", Analog Kidz, Legion of Doom, Sweet Roy Jones, Tim Pike Band, Copper Tree, Former Boston Celtic Walter McCarty's Save the Music Foundation Band, The Beggar's, The Boy's of Rockingham and many others.....
