Drummer with 35+ years of experience looking for opportunities to play. I recently retired from the Army Bands after 20 years. During that time, I played for audiences all over the world, and have gotten to open for such big names as Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry, and Brett Eldridge. I have experience in many styles, and welcome the challenge of trying something new. I have many goals with what I want to do musically in town, including working with original artists, doing some gigging on Broadway, and playing at the Grand Ole Opry (like most drummers in town, I guess). I'd say playing with an original artists, playing at the Opry and on the CMA Awards someday are my big dreams. As far as personality, I consider myself a positive and upbeat person that doesn't bring any dark clouds with me and I get along with pretty much everybody.

I started my musical journey in sixth grade and paying in marching band, then when I was around 13 to 14 years old I was very into the hard rock/metal of that era, my favorites being KISS, Van Halen, and Motley Crue, followed by the other rock groups of that era. the 90's and beyond found me playing with a lot of local country groups, as well as a couple of blues bands. After joining the army bands in 2001, I played in virtually every possible type of group from rock, pop, country and jazz.
