Bio
I am a full-time performer who recently relocated to Reno Nevada from Janesville Wisconsin. I have been playing drums semi-professionally for 20 years in a wide variety of styles. From country to metal, from pop to reggae, I've been fortunate to have a lot of opportunities to play with some fantastic musician. I have touring and recording studio experience.

My personal style leans toward progressive/metal, but I also love to play funk/fusion as well. I particularly enjoy playing in odd time.

I have a formal background in teaching both the Alfred and Haksell Harr drum methods, can read and write drum charts, drum tab as well as instrumental sheet music. I am also versed in the standard rudiments.

In addition to acoustic drums, I also have a background with electronic percussion as well. My current kit is triggered and also has 5 pads integrated into my set up. I use Ableton Live for sampling, sequencing and looping, and Battery for triggering.
