I have played in many different types of bands, recorded demo’s, albums and live shows. I’ve mixed countless live shows both as a performer and as an engineer. I have Tech Directed musicals, run countless indoor and outdoor live gigs and recorded and mixed hours upon hours of all different types of musical performances from full orchestras to small ensembles, rock bands, strings, pianos etc. I’ve taught hundreds (if not over a thousand) classroom and private one on one music lessons to people aged 5 to 50. I have always been interested in every part of music and I’m a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy. I play drums, guitar, bass, keys and I sing. I didn’t use to. But I do now...
This website is me letting people know what I do and what I’m about. What I want to achieve in life is to make/perform music, teach people how to become better musicians and to meet interesting people along the way while growing and learning and sharing knowledge.
