ABOUT

First & foremost I love music and I love my craft and I take it very seriously. I'm a Baton Rouge native, I've been playing drums for 16 years approximately. I have an undergrad in Jazz studies(music performance) from Florida State University. I have touring and studio experience. Easy to get a long with & very respectful to the music & to others on the band stand. I know when to speak and when to keep my mouth shut. I also produce music and have experience with sampling and programming. Well versed in all genres of music. Can read music and very capable of learning by ear.
