Biography

I'm a native Texan from San Antonio where I currently still reside. I'm mostly self-taught and I've been drumming professionally for the last 30 years. I've been fortunate enough to tour extensively and I've had the pleasure of playing stages all over the world. Additionally, I have 30+ recording credits to my name and I am grateful for all those artists who have invited me in to help them realize their visions for how to capture their songs onto tape.
