The Rhythm of the beat has always been in my Soul. Even before I could sit up or walk, I was moving to the Rhythm. At the age of 3, I would sneak up to my brother's drums and attempt to 'play' after watching him for hours...I couldn't reach everything yet, but I was curious...When I was finally tall enough to sit behind the kit and reach everything at the age of 6, my world had changed. I was in Love for the first time in my life, and it was with the drums. I would listen to everything on the radio, or whatever my Mom would play on her Console Stereo and listen to he drum parts of the song...dissecting and learning the groove, feel and positioning of drum fills, etc... Music was now in my blood stream and becoming One with my Soul. 

As a drummer growing up in Western New York, I was exposed to the Live Music Scene at the age of 14, where I would perform in Clubs and at Private Functions with older musicians. Attention to detail of the song is how I learned the music, and is how I treat every song and learn it to this day. It is the passion and the love of Music that drives me to fulfill the end result of whatever is to be created to its fullest. This is the reason why I am hired, my love and passion for the craft as well as who I am as human being. I care about everything that I am involved in, and people see that and respect me. where I would perform in Clubs and at Private Functions with older musicians.
