Music Background I grew up in the wilds of Northern Indiana. As a son of a guitar teacher and trained vocalist, I was encouraged to take up piano lessons. I started at age 5 and studied it for 10 years. Nearing adolescence, when most pianists were either beaten up or given swirlies, I took to a path that few ever dare... to become a drummer.

As the years passed, I was educated in the fine art of drumming, went to college, got a degree in Music Business and moved to California. There I hooked up with full time job. I spent my free time searching out and playing with some starving artists to gain some credibility on the local music scene.

Currently, I'll be gigging 3 - 4 times a week with an excellent guitarist (Clay Colton). I also do a little bit of freelance website and graphic design as well as live recording.

Music Skills In order of proficiency: drums and percussion, vocal harmony, keyboards, MIDI sequencing, mandolin, bass, ukulele
