Thank you for taking an interest what I’m up to. I am very grateful that I can both make a living and a life in pursuit of Music. I truly appreciate that you’ve made it this far to hear more of my story. 

I was born & raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I continue to reside. Since I began drumming in 1997, I have been involved with many different musical projects (please see the full bio for a working list). My current musical undertakings include being Director & Educator at Music Time Academy in Livermore and playing drums with the bands: Smokedaddies, West Grand Boulevard, and Professor Jones & the RendezVooDoo.

I averaged 100+ live shows per year from about 2006-2018, touring across the United States with Muncie, Go Kart Mozart, Kid Moe and TV Mike & the Scarecrowes. Prior to dedicating my time to performing, recording & teaching, I earned a BA from University of California, Berkeley (member of Cal Band for 4 years…Go Bears) & Certificates in Recording Arts & Commercial Music from Diablo Valley College. I am forever honored to have worked with the late, great Steve Sage for many, many years. A great deal of all I have accomplished is owed to his mentorship.
