Welcome! Glad you could stop by here. Feel free to look around, checkout some sounds, sights and where I'm playing.

To find out where I'm playing next, click the gigs link. I try to keep it current, so come back often. I work with a number of groups, from Wil Swindler's Elevenet, Lannie Garrett, The Tuesday Session at Dazzle, various groups at The Crimson Room, Nocturne, Centerpiece Jazz at Luke's A Steak Place, and a host of others.

If you'd like to hear some samples of recordings that I've done, click the Sounds dropdown and choose the bytes link. This will show you some of the different artists that I've recorded with.

I really enjoy teaching and, as a drummer, I've found that it helps me play the drums better. Check out my teaching page, as I share things that folks have passed on to me over the years. Good resources here for you! If you're interested in our program at The University of Colorado Denver, please go to for more information.

Below, I have a blog that includes all kinds of current events, things that interest me, new gear that I've discovered, etc.

Thanks for coming by and please, come back often!

God bless you,
