I have been playing drums for over 30 years with some of the best musicians in the business. I was a full-time road musician until 1990 when I decided to settle down and start a family. Since then, I have played part time in a variety of bands as well as at Eastside Church of God in Anderson IN, but I recently moved to Nashville, TN to pursue new musical opportunities. I have also been in the studio doing drum tracks for several independent recording projects. Believe me, I'm not as busy as I'd like to be. In everything I do my goal is to make people feel that they are better off after having worked with me! I am ALWAYS looking for new places to play and new people to play with. I'm a side man, not a solo artist and I specialize in moving people with my drums and giving the client what they want.
