ABOUT

Over 20+ years ago, I began with a Pearl Maxwin drum set, the radio, and a pair of headphones as I taught myself how to play. Through that experience I developed a fine ear for pulling rhythms out of various styles of music. Over the years I have played with orchestras, bands, and touring choral groups. I can read and chart music.

I am not simply a drummer, yet approach music as a whole. It's not about the drum part, it's about how that part fits in the song. It may be soft, loud, all the kit, or hardly any of it. I think about the big picture, the end product. And that line of thinking is demonstrated with the numerous people and types of places I have played.
