I started drums when I saw Buddy Rich and Ringo Starr on the TV. I drove my parents crazy banging on everything until they realized I wanted to be a musician. I have been a Professional Musician since the age of 13. I love performing and teaching and Im grateful that I can be in a position of creating music every day. I have an extensive background... and because of this experience and seasoning, I feel I bring a fresh, energetic, dynamic, and passionate performance every time Im on stage, in the studio, Educating or performing live. I am an Artist Endorser of DW Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Remo Products, and Vic Firth.
Performing and/or recording with artists such as: Natalie Cole, Clarence Clemons, The Young Dubliners, Al Green, Solomon Burke, Three Dog Night , Disney Films, Sony PlayStation, etc. has given a huge crossover of styles, depth and foundation. I live by this philosophy that Hal Blaine taught me - "If you smile, you'll be around for awhile. If you frown... you won't be around."
