ABOUT

Updated April 2019 -
Open to most musical ambitions with the exception of honky tonk country. Recently became a dad so practice time has dwindled a bit. If I were to try to do a band, rehearsals would need to be consistent and efficient. Currently doing an e-drum church gig every Sunday morning. I don’t enjoy it but it keeps me playing in a group setting and it pays well.

I love music. I’m passionate about drums though I’m not getting to play as much as I’d like.

“Silence isn't hard to play. It's getting it to sound right that's difficult.”
