Professionally trained drummer in jazz, blues, rock, and orchestral snare with 14 years private instruction. I read and write percussion music. Marching percussion experience as an eight-year member of a nationally competitive drum and bugle corps. If you are seeking a drummer for your blues, country, or classic rock band, I look forward to hearing from you. I am open to discuss a full-time, touring position.

Highly talented drummer incorporating much rudimental style; very unique. Can add much color to your band, but never too much.

Meet the Act

I play for the music, not for me. The music genre dictates the color required. The essential ingredient is knowing when and when not to add color and just how much.

Additional Information

I am open to discuss full-time, touring opportunities in the areas of blues, jazz, country, country rock, and classic rock.
