About Me:

As a drummer with an unbridled passion for music, I bring my dynamic energy to every performance. While my musical forte is hard rock, I'm equally at home in the realms of Americana, country, funk, soul, and R&B. Whether it's igniting the stage with the raw power of hard rock or grooving to the smooth rhythms of soul, I thrive in any musical situation.

Professional Drummer:

As a professional drummer, I offer my services as a live and session drummer. I've honed my craft over the years, ensuring that my playing not only drives the music but also elevates the entire performance. My adaptable style allows me to seamlessly transition between genres.

Because I have a dedicated drum studio that has been professionally designed for ideal acoustics and tracking, I am able to record drums for artists of any genre with top-tier audio quality.  Additionally, FM Studios serves as a creative hub where musicians can bring their visions to life.

Passion for Collaboration:

I am known for my collaborative spirit and ability to synergize with fellow musicians. Over the years, I've had the privilege of recording and performing with renowned artists and contributing to countless projects. I believe that the magic of music truly comes alive when creative minds unite, and I'm always eager to embark on new musical adventures. These experiences have further enriched my musical journey and expanded my horizons, and my stage presence and drumming skills have been showcased alongside some of the industry's top talents.
