ABOUT

Former professional drummer craves new creative contacts. Life is meaningless without live expression.

My playing is solid, powerful, punchy, dynamic, tasteful ...deep grooves, lots of spaces.

No personality/ego trips. Laid back and reliable.

Looking to jam/perform with competent players who can improvise and play what they feel in the PRESENT moment... not just copy a recording of someone else's playing done in the PAST.

Check out my influences. If we're on the same page... let's get started.
