I’m a drummer and percussionist based in Toronto, playing extensively in various Jazz, R&B, Latin and rock groups. I have a deep knowledge of the musical tradition, and am able to give the artist what they want. I never cut corners, and am committed to getting the most out of every performance, whether live or in the studio.
I’ve shared the stage with greats such as Larry Goldings, John Scofield, Irwin Hall, Seamus Blake and Peter Bernstein, to name a few.
I also write and compose music for short films and have a firm grasp on the appropriate vibe and techniques used in order to best suit the scenes being shown. This is an art within itself that I’m proud to be a part of.
I look forward to hearing from and playing/collaborating with you!
