I have been playing drums most of my life. My mom used to say that I would drag all of the pots and pans out of cupboard and bang on them. I joined the school band in 5th grade, by Jr. hi I was trying to form pop bands with my friends. I was in my first professional "power trio" in HS and never looked back. I took several years off to finish my education and start my career, but returned to my first love music.

I’m clean and sober but don’t care if you want to have a drink now and then. I’m don’t care if you want to get hi but I’m not going to wait around while you do it at practice.
