ABOUT

Committed touring drummer who has gone all in on music now. After doing some soul searching, left work as a Project Manager for the wonderful (and more challenging world) of music after many years. Can play many more genres than the 4 listed. Picked the ones that I play the most and are closest to my heart.
Skilled contract negotiator, manager, and planner (thank you PMI and the Mark Lewis school of business).
I'm not seeking any other groups currently as I've probably bitten off more than I can chew already. Always open to connect to put shows together, talk music, or generally help a fellow musician out.
Have my own studio at home and am able to record anything. DM me for more on that.
