Experience

Studio Session Drummer
Jan 2004 - Present
Myles Of Drums

I've gained experience from hundreds of recording sessions and years of learning the "ins and outs" of producing. These skills came together resulting in my own online recording business.

I've done countless sessions for musicians around the entire planet.

Professional Drummer
Sep 1992 - Present
Self Employed, Walt Disney World, Cirque Du Soliel, US Army, & many others

My first paying gig happened way back in 10th grade. Since then, I've played around the world with countless bands and artists. There's a few residencies I've held over the years that I am especially proud of.
Walt Disney World (I played in 2 full-time bands and subbed in a few others at the #1 tourist destination in the world.)

Cirque Du Soliel - La Nauba (For 4 years, I played to sellout crowds who payed to see the most exciting show on the planet.)

The Volunteers (I spent 4 unbelievable years touring the US with the Army's top show band. We played some of the greatest events imaginable like the last game at Yankee Stadium to the President's inauguration - attended by over 3 million people.)

Each one these entities held national auditions to fill their drum chair. I'm honored to have won these and several others over the span of my career.
