Overview

Hello! I have been playing drums for more than 50 years, ever since my big sister took me to see the Beatles in Dallas way back in 1964, and that event changed my life! I'm a professional touring drummer currently with nine records under my belt, including one that was Grammy nominated in 2012! I'm comfortable onstage, I take my playing seriously, but I also like to enjoy myself! I studied music education at Sam Houston State University and the University of Houston. I have experience in not only drumset, but also in symphonic and marching band drum sections.
