I'm a former professional drummer (recording, touring) with a BA degree in Music, returning to the scene as a semi-pro. Comfortable with multiple genres including straight-ahead, ECM and/or smooth jazz, backing singers & soloists, and fusion, funk, classic and progressive rock. I've got two Sonor kits (one for jazz and one for louder material) and a full set of Sabian cymbals (my equipment sounds killer). Seeking like-minded pros who enjoy playing out.

What to Expect
Professional. I know how to prepare, practice, rehearse and perform. The only surprises are good ones (my playing).
Former full-time pro drummer & percussionist (touring & recording) with a degree in music. I've played all styles, from rock to jazz to symphonic to shows. Got to play with some great ones too, back in the day. Recently sold my software company, retired, and am getting back into the music scene. My chops are good!
Additional Booking Notes
I have two sets of Sonor drums, one for jazz and one for fusion/rock. Sabian Jack Dejohnette cymbals. Excellent sound kits, especially when mic'd.
