Professional Drummer :

In more than thirty years as a drummer, I have developed a particular style of playing which has been perfected in diversified genre including: Country, Jazz, Rock (‘Classic‘, progressive, alternative, ballads) and Blues; all performed in both secular and contemporary Christian settings.

My skill as a professional drummer has been utilized in several recording studios including: Inner Light, located in Indianapolis, IN - owned and operated by radio and television personality, Phil Foley; and Middle Earth, located in Lafayette, IN - owned and operated by Michael Lewis, who assisted me in producing a 7-track sampler compact disc DEMO (available upon request).
