Hello Beautiful People!

 

Thanks for stopping by! A little bit about me -- I have been banging on the drums since I was 8 years old. It was always my dream to play the drums on stage, and that is what I’ve done since I was 16 years old. It’s been an honor to play music for people all over the world, and live out my passion! 

 

Since COVID has hit, I’ve had to reorganize life, as many of us have. Tour life has taken a short break. Although I miss those shows, I am also grateful...I started playing for Michael Franti and Spearhead 22 years ago, and before that I played with Inka Inka, the Mandators, and many others. For some of those years, I was running hard around the world playing some 200 shows a year! A summer at home and some vacation time is a blessing. I've had some incredible exposure to some of the greats, spending time in the studio with Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship, Babatunde Olatunjii, bluegrass great and grammy-award winner Peter Rowan.

 

So for now, until I’m back out on the road to meet and greet you, and watch you dance and sing to your favorite tunes, I’m here bringing to life some of the ideas I’ve had over the years! Check out the hand drum and trap drum lessons I’m offering online or in person, my newest t-shirt design, and some of the music I’ve laid down over the years. Keep your eye out for some new tunes coming in hot! 

 

Thanks again for stopping by! Drop me a line here or via Instagram or Facebook. Can’t wait to see you soon, somewhere or somehow, and rock out! 

 

Big Love,
