My late dad taught me how to play drums at the age of 8 and I've been obsessed with drumming ever since. As a freelance drummer, I've performed everywhere from Las Vegas' MGM Grand, Denver's Grizzly Rose, world-famous honky-tonks in Nashville and many clubs, festivals and bars in-between. Performing with a wide range of artists from Rock, Country, Hip hop, Punk and Contemporary Worship has allowed me to appreciate an eclectic taste in music and shape my drumming style around most genres of popular music. My passion is to foster happiness through the power of music while cultivating relationships with the people I make music with.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformancePlaying a drum solo in front of 10,000 people downtown Cincinnati. At one point, the crowd all had their hands up and head-banging to the breakdown I incorporated in the solo... the energy was amazing and it's a feeling I'll never forget!
