Twelve years in commercial music, musical theatre, cruise ship performance and contemporary church music.
Some of my drumming influences are from
Alex Acuna, Dave Weckl, Dany Gotlieb, and other drummers,
i.e. John Riley’s Jazz books.
Toto (Jeff Picaro), Kansas, Gloria Estefan, Basia, Sade, Madonna,
CCM artists such as Crystal Lewis, Burlap to Cashmere, as well as current Rock/pop songs are significant groups making up my current music style. Jazz is main style I like to perform, though performed many styles during Holland America Line Cruise ship Gig
(Pop/Rock, Country, Blues, R&B).
Performing with Samantha Carlson (Jazz) and Kelsey Mira
(Pop/Rock/Jazz) add to performance background.
In 2018, I performed two musicals,
“Tarzan” (Columbus, OH) and “Wizard of Oz”
(CoveDale Theatre, Cincinnati, OH).
