Welcome to my website.

This is where you can find out what I'm up to, where I'm playing, listen to some music (past and present), check out some videos and more.

Feel free to check out the blog. I like writing about what I'm doing with my different bands, and I also write a lot about drumming and music and the music business and other stuff. The blog is a way, in this weird online world, for you to get a little better understanding of who I am, my personality and what I'm thinking about.

If you want to CONTACT me, go to the contact section on this website and email me. That is the easiest and fastest way since I'm pretty good with email.

OR, you could try some SOCIAL MEDIA-IZING action with me in the usual places. You can friend or follow me on FACEBOOK, follow me on TWITTER or find me on INSTAGRAM.

Anyway, thanks for visiting. And come back often because I blog pretty much every single week, and my GIG schedule will always be updated and available here. There will be new videos, music, musings, drum stuff and more posted all the time....I plan on staying busy and I want to tell YOU about all of it!
