I hit stuff
  with sticks

I started playing at the age of eight. I suppose expression through physical motion is what attracted me! In recent years my health has affected my ability to practice effectively but I have been super blessed to be able to develop, play and perform in some great places with some amazing people.

Over the years, I have been inspired and encouraged by many other drummers - honourable mentions:
Joel Green, Derek Munson, DeCarlos Davis, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Benny Greb, Anika Niles, Aaron Spears, Sean Wright, JP Bouvet, Gavin Harrison, Teddy Campbell, Andy Harrison, Matt Garska, Jojo Mayor.
