I started playing drums at age 12. I played my first paid gig at age 15. I played in the Suncoast Sound Drum and Bugle Corps drum line from 1983-1987 where I played tenors for the 83'-84' seasons and then became snare section leader from 1985 to 1987. I also played drum set for the Suncoast Sound Jazz Ensemble during those years. During my years in drum corps and for several years after I had the honor of teaching percussion lines for almost every high school in Pinellas County. Since then I have been writing, recording, and performing with some of the best artists and bands in Florida, constantly working as a professional musician. Recently I have moved into the field of Computer Film Production and Editing on my free time when I'm not performing. I would like to personally thank Al Murray for his guidance through my adolescent years of playing drums and teaching me to play correct!
