About me? Loaded question. I'm a dad, husband, Grammy-nominated drummer, martial artist, coach, aspiring blogger, humorist, author, teacher and this website is going to reflect all that... maybe.
In a past lifetime (it seems so long ago) I toured with a whole bunch of bands and made over 100 recordings, most notably with an artist known as Matisyahu. With that, I developed a few relationships with the companies I love. I endorse Sabian Cymbals, Vic Firth Drumsticks, DW Drums, Evans Drumheads, Audix Mics, Humes and Berg cases, and Prologix Pads.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from Mason Gross School of Music, and with over 25 years of experience playing drums, I wrote two books, "Science of Time" and "Improvisations for Syncopation." Feel free to send me a message if you are interested in lessons, mentoring, coaching, and musical collaborations, or just to connect.
I enlisted in the United States Navy in 2010 and currently, I'm a Musician First Class Petty Officer. I did a brief stint at one of the premier bands (US Naval Academy) when they had a rock band, Electric Brigade.
