Biography

26 year old - up and coming drummer from Chicago IL, with a style somewhere between progressive and sporadic while remaining conscious of dynamic and pocket. “I have been a slave to groove since I can remember discovering the raw power in different rhythms.”

First exposed to music thru his parents Classic Rock & Funk roots (with bands like Led Zeppelin, CTA, James Brown, Jackson 5) expressed an interest in percussion by pulling pots and pans out of cabinets and beating them before he could walk. "My parents bought me a Mickey Mouse drum set when I was around five, I think it took my dad longer to assemble it then it took me to bash it into you pieces"

Self educated by a love of playing saxophone with other people in an elementary school music program. He began to explore independent music at the ripe age of 7 with help from a older friend’s local band. “From the day I owned my first real drum set, I did everything I could to play with as many different people as I possible. Even if I didn’t care for the music that was asked to be played, just to be able to communicate to others with instruments was such an amazing feeling” now lucky enough to be able to pick and choose when he gets offers from bands that he does enjoy, some current projects included
