I am available for session drumming & live shows. I've been playing the drums for 19+ years and professionally for 11 years. My main genres are funk, jazz, blues, & folk rock, but still very fluent in most other genres.
I have toured nationally & internationally with many bands, and have many recording credits as a musician, producer, & engineer.
I have studied live sound & studio engineering at The Los Angeles Recording School in Los Angeles, CA, music theory at Portland Community College, and I have been mentored by drummer Anthony Jones (Pink Martini, N-Touch Band, Patrick Lamb, and many more).
For a more detailed overview of my resume, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Justin and his band were incredible. They made the wedding so much fun and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I think every single guest commented on how great they were and asked how we found them. I was truly blown away. If I ever need a band for a party again, I know who to call.

What to Expect
I am easy to contact.
I am a quick learner.
I am very detail oriented.
I have all of my own professional gear. (drums, cymbals, hardware, small percussion, in-ear monitors, & cases for all)
I keep all of my gear very well maintained and show/recording ready.
I have reliable transportation.
I usually arrive 30 minutes before setup to survey the stage/band area, as well as address any unforeseen changes.
I takes me between 20-40 minutes to load-in and setup, depending on stage access and the amount of gear needed. Same for teardown.
I always come to gigs clean cut and in the proper attire.

Additional Booking Notes
When performing outside, there must be a covering over the stage/performance area that protects my drums & myself from the sun, rain, and any other elements that are harmful to my gear.
For monitoring, I prefer a XLR or 1/4” line for my in-ear monitoring system when possible or a monitor wedge.
I require an area no smaller the 6' by 5' to accommodate my drum kit.
I need at least one power output.
