Overview

I started playing drums when I was 9 years old. My passion grew through high school and I decided to go to college for music. I attended the Jazz / commercial music program at Temple University, graduating in 1988 with a bachelor of Music degree. During my university training I had the opportunity to play in all kinds of Jazz, Funk, Fusion and Rock bands. I also played snare drum with the Temple Diamond Marching Band for 2 seasons under the drum line direction of Alan Kinsey as well as playing a season with the classical percussion ensemble directed by Glenn Steele.

Upon graduation I became involved with many local Philadelphia rock bands and played shows all over the Delaware Valley. I also began teaching drum lessons at 2 area music stores (George’s and Roxbury Music) as well as getting a job as a recording engineer at a production music company called Musicrafters. Always hungry to learn more about my instrument, I traveled to New York to study at Drummers Collective with Sandy Gennaro (Joan Jett, Cyndi Lauper) and Pete Zeldman. During this time I played with two very successful Philly based rock bands, Tenth House and Iota and the Minor Details.

In 2001, after being very successful at racing bicycles for many years, I started coaching endurance athletes. Currently I am located in Los Angeles California, where I work as a coach with one of the leading endurance coaching companies in the world along with performing and teaching drums.
