    Super efficient and easy to work with. Great communication back and forth for remote sessions to get them done quickly. He knows exactly what each track needs and is amazing at staying in the pocket. Definitely recommend for both studio sessions and live shows!

    Incredibly tight drummer. The kind I’d consider a true musician who doesn’t overplay or underplay, knows when the right time to throw in a nasty fill is, and learns his material. Also his drum tuning is on point. Tones sound great.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: I am reserved but play with passion and feel.

  5. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  6. A: I would love to play with John Mayer, Anderson Paak, Deftones, Robert Glasper, or the Weeknd. I love all of these artists' music.

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: One production tip I have for other drummers is to not overplay. I often see drummers trying to execute fills that take away from instead of add to the music. As drummers, we are not the focus but the foundation.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: I usually work on singer-songwriter, rock, and country, however, I am a huge fan of RnB and hip-hop and like to produce in my spare time.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: My strongest skill is playing in the pocket. I am not one to overplay or play too many notes. I try to keep it simple so that the song can breathe and elevate what is most important.

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: My playing elevates the song by providing a firm foundation of groove and sonic presence.

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: I like to receive a demo track to listen to, and then I usually jam over the track to find a groove I like. Then I track the drums and edit/mix them.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I own a Mapex Armory drum set as well as a Ludwig maple snare. My cymbals range the Meinl Byzance line as well as a Zildjian K Constantinople Ride. I use Audix microphones.
