About Me

I am a full-time working drummer currently residing in Las Vegas. In addition to guiding up and coming drummers with their musical careers, I am working on music & soundtracks for film and television projects with platinum-selling recording artist Mark Slaughter. My drumming can be heard on Mark Slaughter'™s first-ever solo track, "Never Givin™ Up" Release March 18, 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play.

In April of last year I was inducted (for the 2nd time!) into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame for my collaboration with "Ripside." I performed at the induction concert with fellow inductees Xcursion (Mark Slaughter, guitar/vocals; Kelly Garni, bass guitar). A picture of this performance is included in my "photos & video" section.

Background:
I started playing snare drum at age 8. Two years later I got my first drum set and began studying with jazz great, Irv Kluger. I haven't looked back since. I started playing music in the Wm E. Ferron Elementary School band. In my junior year in high school I co-founded Dream - my first œpro gig. After high school, I joined the progressive-rock band "Ripside" and my journey into all things music began.
