I’ve been creating drum beats in my head since age 12 when I’ve got my first drum kit. I’ve been performing, recording and teaching drums since age 18 working with many artists on a variety of music styles.

I live in Boston, teach drum set and percussion at Berklee College of Music, own Artdrums Recording Studio. I'm the author of the book Brazilian Rhythms for Drum Set and Percussion published by Hal Leonard/Berklee press. Yamaha drums, Zildjian, Vic Firth, and Evans artist.

I've been playing drums for over 35 years and I have been the owner of Artdrums Studios since 1997. Recording drum is my passion I put my heart and soul into every recording project I do. I would love the opportunity to do the drum tracks for your record!
