"Makin' it swing is my thing! I started studying with local percussionist Larry Troxel at age 11 and eventually with the great Joe Porcaro. My style is all things rock n roll, stemming from my intrigue of jazz influenced early rock drummers like Mitch Mitchell, Ringo, Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Bun E. Carlos and also the GOAT, Buddy Rich. I've been forturnate to have worked with Don Felder (Eagles), Frank Simes (The WHO), Jay Buchanan (Rival Sons), Twelvehourmary, Chris Hanlin, Magnet Monks (magnetmonks.com)."
