***NOT CURRENTLY INTERESTED IN BAND COMMITMENT***

Pro drummer since 1987.
Currently based out of Southern, NH - Rockingham County.
Over 33 years of experience in the business – live performance and studio covering many styles and genres.

I have never been; or ever desired to be a "compositional" type of player, that plays things the same way twice.
It is contrary to what I enjoy most about drumming and music - creating, exploring and growing - not being stagnant.
I trust my ears, experience and musical instincts to chart the course. My goal is to tastefully embellish within the confines of a song’s context, inject excitement for the listener, while hopefully inspiring the surrounding players (and myself) to new heights of performance and creativity...
