United States of America



Drumming experience - 16 years
Drum instructor (freelance) - 4 years

For 3 years I had the pleasure of taking lessons from Kofi Baker son of legendary drummer Ginger Baker. We we focused on the importance of "Four Limb drumming" by using our hands as equally as our feet. As well as the importance of rudiments, site reading and music theory. I owe everything I have learned and have taught to Kofi Baker.

I can play any style and I know 400+ cover songs. I’m available anytime for sessions, touring, sit in’s. Hit me up for any type of gig!
