Overview


I grew up in a small town in Texas and knew from an early age that music was for me. Starting first on piano at age 8 and eventually mallet percussion and drum line in high school, it wasn't until 14 that I sat at my first drum set. I immediately started playing anytime and anywhere I could. This meant countless hours shedding alone and with friends in the dining room my mom let me convert into a practice space. This also very quickly meant playing everything from churches and parties to clubs like the White Rabbit and Sams Burger Joint in San Antonio. I found myself in a recording studio recording for the first time at 15 and I was hooked.

After high school, I took my new found love for production and the studio world and moved to Tempe, Arizona to study audio engineering at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. It was here that I gained the technical knowledge that sets me apart from many of my peers as a studio drummer. After a few years of engineering in Austin and Nashville I came back to drumming and played with the band Cord for the next 8 years. As a band we toured nationally and recorded three albums. It was with this band that I had the opportunity to play at legendary Austin venues like Stubbs, Antones, and Emos.

In 2010 I moved to Savannah, Georgia where I collaborated with Graveface Records owner Ryan Graveface on multiple projects including the Marshmallow Ghosts album and movie project and Dreamend albums as well as performances including 2011 SXSW with both bands.

Currently I am back in Austin, Texas playing on the road and in the studio with Texas Country artist Mark Mckinney or working with my production company Shadowbox productions.
