I am a graduate of the Vic high R&B band but I don't like to think about that. I also went to Malaspina for Jazz but they asked me to leave because the brainwashing wasn't working. (j.k.) I have been playing professionally for more than eight years regularly sitting in with The Bill Johnson Band, Slim and the Dusters, Big Band Trio, Robert Brodeur, Clark Brendan, Newman Cory, 'Maurice', Armchair Cynics, The Midnights, and many other locals that I can't think of right now. I am currently working with Summer and the Sinners with our first CD under way and another to come we've established ourselves on the world market. I co-founded Afraid Not in 2000 and continue to write in that project. We toured with Swollen Members, Booty Dharma, Flip Nixon, Zufo, Lo Fi Love and Amanda Sonic. I consider myself to be a top quality drummer dedicated to playing as much as I can. With a solid working knowledge of music theory and technical music construction I would be an asset to any project. I will play any style that allows me to challenge myself creatively and at the same time lay down a groove that is both tight and complimentary. Basically I got my chops down and can do what you need.
