I'm a professional drummer based in Brooklyn, NY. I am proficient and experienced in all music styles, from alt folk to drum n' bass. I enjoy working with a click, both on stage, and in the studio. I consistently strive to convey music with the honesty and enthusiasm it demands.
If a person walked off the street into a performance of mine, he or she wouldn't need to understand the history of music to enjoy it.
