Music has been a passion in my life since I can remember. Since I was a child, I have been involved in music as much as I possibly could, from musicals, bands to choirs. Besides singing and falling in love with MTV (back when they played only videos) I have always had a soft spot for the drums. I became a drummer at an early age due to my father and brother both being drummers. My brother introduced me to bands/artists from Guns N Roses and Motley Crue to No Doubt and even some Al Green …my desire to play and sing enhanced the more I learned about every genre of music. I have had the privilege of playing and singing with a variety of bands from here to Florida the past 15 years (By The Way, Addiction, Phase Three). Performing is what I love to do, especially with this group of talented fellas.
