I am a freelance drummer with recording credits that run the full spectrum; from emerging artists to Grammy Winners. I am very versatile and have contributed to recordings by artists in many musical genres: hard rock, blues, contemporary country, Latin, Brazilian, Straight Ahead, Big Band and Smooth Jazz, singer/songwriter and avant garde

I am an internationally recognized drummer and have recorded and performed with hundreds of artists in many different musical genres. In recent years I have appeared in a number of recording and performance situations with bassist Mark Egan.

In 2013 I purchased a recording studio designed by legendary room designer Jon Storyk (Electric Lady Studios, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Alicia Keys - Oven Studios, Jay Z Studios (Roc the Mic)) previously called "Electric Fields" featuring a large control room, large "live" playing room with cathedral ceiling, recording isolation booth and two other rooms with tie lines for live recording.

I record live drum tracks, drum and bass tracks and full rhythm section tracks at the studio.
