About Me

As a drummer and teacher I…


…currently record and play live within jazz, rock, punk, metal, contemporary, Americana/folk and theater settings.


…studied drumming with various instructors growing up and at the prestigious Armed Forces School of Music in Little Creek, VA while active duty with the US Army in 1997 and 1998.


…began teaching drum lessons to seniors between my freshman and sophomore year of High School in Vancouver, WA.


…I feel as though teaching kids chose me!  I have taught adults my whole life (and still do) but nothing compares to the excitement, enthusiasm, pride and sense of achievement both my Academy students and I get from setting goals together and reaching them.

Teaching people to drum since 1993
